Given any c > 1, show that c n n ! → 0. Part C: Traditional Problems (3 problems, 15 points each so 45 points) C–1. Let x k ≥ 0 be a sequence of real numbers that converges to A . Show that A ≥ 0. C–2. Given a sequence { a k } of real numbers, let S n = a 1 + ··· + a n n be the sequence of averages ( arithmetic mean ). If a k converges to 0, show that the averages S n also converge to 0. C–3.
