This exam is printed on both sides of the paper. Good luck! (1) (20 marks.) Let { x n } and { y n } be sequences of real numbers. Let L R . (a) Explain what it means to say lim n x n = L . (b) Explain what is meant by limsup n y n . (c) Show that if lim n x n = L then lim n | x n | = | L | . (d) Suppose limsup n y n = L . Is it necessarily true that limsup n | y n | = | L | ? Explain your answer. (2) (20 marks.) A real number is said to be algebraic if for some n N there is a polynomial f ( x ) = x n + a n- 1 x n- 1 + + a of degree n with a i Q for all i , and with f ( ) = 0.
