For example, here is a partial proof:

Let . Clearly

case 1:

Let . Suppose . Then . On the other hand , so . Therefore, .

Do you see how this follows the definition that I gave in the top?

Now it remains to show the same, in the case - April 30th 2010, 06:15 PMPlato

Well yeach I gues you are right. However I do have another problem:

Prove that that the following sequence,defined recursively, converges or diverges:
