Unformatted text preview: ( x nx n +1 ) 2 = x 2 n +110 = x 2 n +110 = x 2 n +1 2 5 = x n +1 2 5 x n +1 since n N ,x n > = x n +1 x n +1 2 + 5 x n +1 = x n +1 x n +2 Therefore x n +1 x n +2 for all n N . Therefore x ( n ) is ultimately decreasing. Therefore < x n < x 2 for all n N so that ( x n ) is bounded as well as monotone. Therefore by the Monotone Convergence Theorem, ( x n ) is convergent. 1 To fnd lim( x n ), let x = lim( x n ) = lim( x n +1 ) by virtue oF the Fact that any tail oF ( x n ) also converges to x . Then, x = lim( x n +1 ) = lim( x n ) 2 + 5 lim( x n ) = x = x 2 + 5 x = 2 x 2 = x 2 + 10 = x 2 = 10 = x = 10 since n N ,x n > ThereFore lim( x n ) = 10. Q.E.D. 2...
