Math Help - MAX prove question..

1. MAX prove question..

An is a bounded sequence which converges to 0.
An>0 for every n.
prove that in this sequence we have a maximal member
??

again its obvious because if a sequence is descending and it converges from a positive number
to 0.
so 0 is the larger lower bound
and our first member must be the larger

how to transform it to math?

A sequence which is convergent and bounded can be non decreasing. For example the maximal member of $(A_n)=\left(\mathrm{e}^{-(n-10)^2}\right)_{n\in\mathbb{N}}$ is $A_{10}=\mathrm{e}^{-(10-10)^2}=1>A_0$...

3. If $A_n$ has no maximal term then $\left( {\exists N_1 } \right)\left[ 0<{A_1 < A_{N_1 } } \right]$.
Moreover, $\left( {K > 1} \right)\left( {\exists N_k } \right)\left[ {A_{N_{K - 1} } < A_{N_k } } \right]$.
That simply means that the sub sequence $\left(A_{N_n}\right)$ cannot converge to $0$.
