Don't you think there's a typo, since we are given a1 > 1, and a_n+1 is for n>= 2

Why should anyone think that?

Take a look at this - Mar 15th 2013, 03:47 PMKanwar245Re: Sequences convergence problem
Okay, so when proving through induction that it's monotonically decreasing, I just need to prove that a

_{n+1}>= a_{n}right - Mar 15th 2013, 04:12 PMPlatoRe: Sequences convergence problem
