Section 11.2 C11S02.001: The most obvious pattern is that a n = n 2 for n = 1. C11S02.002: The most obvious pattern is that a n =5 n 3 for n = 1. C11S02.003: The most obvious pattern is that a n = 1 3 n for n = 1. C11S02.004: The most obvious pattern is that a n = ( 1) n 1 2 n 1 = µ 1 2 n 1 for n = 1.

C11S02.015: Given: a n =1+( 1) n for n = 1. If n is odd then a n 1) = 0; if n is even then a n = 1 + 1 = 2. Therefore the sequence { a n } diverges. To prove this, we appeal to the deFnition of limit of a sequence given in Section 11.2. Suppose that { a n } converges to the number L . Let ² = 1 2 and suppose that N is a positive integer. Case 1: L = 1. Then choose n = N such that n is odd. Then a n =0,so | a n L | = | 0 L | = L = 1 >². Case 2: L< 1. Then choose n = N such that n is even. Then a n =2,so | a n L | = | 2 L | =2 L> 1 No matter what the value of L , it cannot be made to Ft the deFnition of the limit of the sequence { a n } . Therefore the sequence { a n } = { 1+( 1) n } has no limit. (We can’t even say that it approaches + or −∞ ; it does not.) C11S02.016: Because 1 + ( 1) n =0if n is odd and 2 if n is even, 0 5 1) n n 5 2 n for all n = 1. Therefore, by the squeeze law for sequences, lim n →∞ 1) n n =0. C11S02.017: We use l’Hˆopital’s rule for sequences (Eq. (9) of Section 11.2): lim n →∞ a n = lim n →∞ 1) n n ( 3 2 ) n = lim x →∞ 1 ± x 1 / 2 ( 3 2 ) x = ± lim x →∞ 1 2 x 1 / 2 ( 3 2 ) x ln ( 3 2 ) =0 . C11S02.018: We use the squeeze law for sequences (Theorem 3 of Section 11.2): 1 5 sin n 5 1 for all integers n = 0, and therefore 1 3 n 5 sin n 3 n 5 1 3 n for all integers n = 1. By the result in Example 9 of Section 11.2, 1 / 3 n 0as n + . Therefore lim n →∞ sin n 3 n . C11S02.019: ±irst we need a lemma. Lemma: If r> 0, then lim n →∞ 1 n r Proof: Suppose that 0. Given ²> 0, let N =1+[ [1 1 /r ]]. Then N is a positive integer, and if n>N , then n> 1 1 /r , so that n r > 1 . Therefore ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ 1 n r 0 ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ .
