Using a Sequence Consider die sequence where
(a) Show that is increasing and bounded.
(b) Prove exists.
To prove: The sequence is increasing and bounded, where and .
Consider the following sequence,
To show that sequence is increasing:
The monotonicity is proved by mathematical induction
Consider the statement .
Let us suppose the statement is true for that is .
That is the statement is true for
By mathematical induction the statement is true for all
The provided sequence is increasing.
Now, to show that sequence is bounded.
Consider the first term .
From this single term the upper bound is greater than or equal to
To Prove: The exists, where and .
To calculate: The value of , where and .
