Unformatted text preview: Math 23b Homework 8 Solutions 1. (a) Let a n = 1 n 2 . Given > 0, we have by the Archimedean Property that there is some n > √ so that n 2 > and | 1 n 2- | = 1 n 2 < . Hence, lim n →∞ a n = 0. Let b n = n . If b n → L then there exists N such that for all n ≥ N , | n- L | = | b n- L | < 1 so that n < L + 1. But there exists an integer greater than L + 1 so we have a contradiction. Now consider a n b n = 1 n . By a similar argument to the one above, 1 n → 0. (b) Let a n = 1 n and b n = n . Then a n → 0, b n does not converge, and a n b n = 1. Clearly then a n b n → 1, since | a n b n- 1 | = 0 for all n ≥ 1. (c) Let a n = 1 n , b n = n 2 . Then a n → 0, b n does not converge, and a n b n = n does not converge. 2. (a) We will prove the contrapositive: all convergent sequences are bounded. Suppose x n → L . Then there exists N ∈ N such that, for all n ≥ N , | x n- L | < 1....
