    Prove this limit

    Hello, can anyone give any hint regarding this? I'm lost.

    Prove that if Lim an = p
    n-->infinity
    then,
    Lim ( a1 + a2+ .......an )/n = p
    n-->infinity

    Can't get started.

    Replacing a_n by b_n = a_n - p (for all n), you reduce the problem to the case where p=0. The proof for that case is given in this thread.

    Re: Prove this limit

    I actually have to solve this same problem, and I clicked on "this thread" but it just brought me to the general page of all the threads. I've been trying to find it but I'm not getting anywhere, is there a more specific location I can find the thread that solves this problem? Please help!!
