Unformatted text preview: from the deﬁnition of “ convergence” prove that the sequence (3 a n-2 b n ) ∞ n =1 converges. 6. Suppose that ( a n ) ∞ n =1 and ( b n ) ∞ n =1 are sequences of real numbers that converge to real numbers L and M , respectively. a. Prove that if for all n ∈ Z + a n < b n , then L ≤ M . b. Give an explicit counterexample that shows that (under the same hypotheses as above) the conclusion L ≤ M cannot be replaced by L < M . c. Conversely suppose that ( a n ) ∞ n =1 and ( b n ) ∞ n =1 are sequences of real numbers that converge to real numbers L and M , respectively. What can you say (without proof) about the relationship between a n and b n if you know only that L < M ?...
