Prove that, for every n N , S (sup S 1 /n, sup S ] n = . Use this fact to select s n . 7. Determine whether the following sequences converge. Compute the limits if they exist. (a) a n = n 4 + 4 n n 2 , (b) b n = (2 n + cos n ) / ( n + 1), (c) c n = ( 1) n n 2 . 8. Prove that ( 5 1) / 2 is not a rational number. 9. Let a n = n/ 2 n . Prove that lim n a n = 0. Hint . You can use Exercise 1.9 (from Homework 1). 10. ind all rational numbers r satisfying 2 r 5 8 r 2 + 1 = 0. Links: the syllabus, the main page of the course. the solutions. 1...
