First a1 = 21 − 1 = 1. Next suppose ak = 2k − 1 for some k ≥ 1. Then ak +1 = 2ak + 1 = 2(2k − 1) + 1 = 2k +1 − 1. 1 k k +1 k +1 k k +1 = 1. Next suppose ak = k −1 for some k ≥ 1.

Let > 0. Choose k so that, for n ≥ k , L − < cn < L + and an ≤ bn ≤ cn . L − < an < L + , For such n, L − < bn < L + . 45. Let > 0. Since an → L, there exists a positive integer N such that L − < an < L + for all n ≥ N . Now an ≤ M for all n, so L − < M , or L < M + . Since is arbitrary, L ≤ M . 47. Assume an → 0. Let > 0. There exists a positive integer N such that an − 0 < Now assume an  → 0. Since −an  ≤ an ≤ an , an → 0 by the pinching theorem. 49. By the continuity of f , f (L) = f ( lim an ) = lim f (an ) = lim an+1 = L.

Since j is ﬁxed, n 2 n n a1 + · · · + aj  n−j < . Since < , we see that, for n sufﬁciently large, mn  < . This shows that mn → 0. n 2 2 n 2 √ √ √ √ √ 49. (a) Let S be the set of positive integers n(n ≥ 2) for which the inequalities hold. Since ( b)2 − 2 ab + ( a)2 = ( b − a)2 > 0, it follows that √ √ a1 + b 1 a1 + b1 a+b > ab and a1 > b1 . Now a2 = < a1 and b2 = a1 b1 > b1 . Also, by the argument above, a2 = > a1 b1 = b2 , and so 2 2 2 ak + bk ak + a k ak + bk a1 > a2 > b2 > b1 . Thus 2 ∈ S . Assume that k ∈ S . Then ak +1 = < = ak , bk +1 = ak bk > b2 = bk , and ak +1 = > k 2 2 2 ak bk = bk +1 . Thus k + 1 ∈ S . Therefore the inequalities hold for all n ≥ 2. (b) {an } is a decreasing sequence which is bounded below. {bn } is an increasing sequence which is bounded above. Let La = lim an , Lb = lim bn . Then an =
