If so, find the limit, if not, prove that they do not: (5 marks each) (a) a n = 3 n 4 +2 n 2 +5 n- n n 4 +3 n- 2 Converges: Use either lHopitals rule or divide both top and bottom by n 4 and use limit rules. (b) b n = n cos ( 1 n ) Diverges: If b n converges, then b n cos ( 1 n ) = n converges, which is clearly false. (2) Suppose that f ( x ) is differentiable for all x [0 , 1] and that f (0) = 0. If a n = nf ( 1 n ) : (a) Show that lim n a n = f (0)(5 marks) By definition: f (0) = lim h f (0+ h )- f (0) h = lim h 1 h f ( h ). Using that lim h g ( h ) = lim n g ( 1 n ) and the Connect the dots the- orem from class, lim h 1 h f ( h ) = lim n nf ( 1 n ) (b) Use part a to calculate the limit of b n = n sin ( 1 n ) (2 marks) Using f ( x ) = sin( x ), we see that lim h b n = f (0) = cos(0) = 1....
