Assume lim a n = 0 (this means that for any δ > 0, there is a natural number N such that for all n ≥ N ,  a n  < δ ). Let > 0 and set δ = 2 . Since lim a n = 0, then there exists a natural number N such that for all n ≥ N ,  a n  < δ = 2 , which implies that √ a n < . That for every > 0, such an N exists, means that lim √ a n = 0. Exercise 3.2.5 Let { a n } be a convergent sequence of integers, with a n → L . We prove that { a n } is eventually constant, that is, a n = L for large n . Since a n → L , then there is some natural number some N such that  a n L  < 1 4 for all n ≥ N . This requires a n to lie in the interval ( L 1 4 ,L + 1 4 ) for all n ≥ N . As this interval has length 1 2 , it can contain at most 1 2 = 1 integer, say, M . Thus, a n = M for all n ≥ N , which is to say, { a n } is eventually constant.is eventually constant....
