It can also be deﬁned as a function whose domain is the set of positive integers. (b) The terms an approach 8 as n becomes large. In fact, we can make an as close to 8 as we like by taking n sulﬁciently large. (c) The terms an become large as 71 becomes large. In fact, we can make an as large as we like by taking n sufﬁciently large. 2. (a) From Deﬁnition 1, a convergent sequence is a sequence for which lim an exists. Examples: {1 / n}, {1 / 2“} Raw (b) A divergent sequence is a sequence for which lim an does not exist. Examples: {n}, {sin n} ’71—’00 1 W (0.2)", so the sequence is {0.8, 0.96, 0.992, 0.9984, 0.99968, . . }..

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
