What about the sequence a=16 + (10n2+1)/efor all n.  Is it monotone? Does it converge?  If so, to what?

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

Given a sequence witn nth term is shown below

A function is said to be monotonic if it is entirely non increasing or entirely non decreasing. To see if a fucntion is monotonic we find its derivative.

Step 2

derivaiton of nth term with respect to n we get as shown below

Here we can see that derivative of an is not monotonic since it is quadratic equation which is positive at s...
