Mathematics 220 Homework for Week 11 Due April 2 1. 12.2 2. 12.4 3. 12.6 4. Prove that for any x,y R , ± ± | x | - | y | ± ± ≤ | x - y | . Hint: prove -| x - y | ≤ | x | - | y | ≤ | x - y | . Hint on the hint: The triangle inequality is your friend. 5. For each of the following prove or give a counter-example (a) If { a n } converges to L then {| a n |} converges to | L | . Hint: you need to use the result of Q4 (b) If {| a n |} is convergent then { a n } is convergent. (c) a n 0 if and only if | a n | → 0. 6. Find an example of each of the following (a) A convergent sequence of rational numbers having an irrational limit. (b) A convergent sequence of irrational numbers having a rational limit. 7. For each of the following give a counter-example to show they are false.

(c) If { s n } and { s n t n } are convergent, then { t n } is convergent. 8. Let { a n } be a sequence of positive numbers. Prove that if { a n } diverges to innity then { 1 /a n } converges to 0. 9. Let { a n } , { b n } , { c n } be sequences such that a n b n c n for all n N . Prove that if a n b and c n b then b n b .
