I'm thinking of rationalizing it first, also I can see that the limit approaches 0

That sounds good- multiply by

yes and it becomes

From

You can show that this is always less than

and always greater than

Using the sandwich theorem show that a_{n}converges to zero. - March 15th 2013, 06:32 PMProve ItRe: Proof of a limit of an infinite sequence

Oh yes you could do it that way (Clapping)

right but when proving, for all epsilon greater than 0, what N would I choose so that

If i try to square it, epsilon gets squared too... - March 15th 2013, 07:53 PMProve ItRe: Proof of a limit of an infinite sequence
- March 15th 2013, 08:18 PMKanwar245Re: Proof of a limit of an infinite sequence
Right so we have this:

Now from this point on, if I try to isolate n, at some point I will have to square which will yield ... - March 15th 2013, 09:59 PMProve ItRe: Proof of a limit of an infinite sequence

Okay Perfect!
