UNIVERSITY OF MALTAFACULTY OF SCIENCEDEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICSEngineering-1 Problem Sheet 4
(1) Using the theorems on limits of sequences and the definition of a limit of a sequence, find the limit as
n
→ ∞
, if any, of thefollowing sequences:sin
nn,
4
2
n
3
n
+ 2
,n
4
+ 1
n
6
,
2
1
n
,n
4
+ 1
n
2
.
(2) Show that the sequence
a
n
=
n
+2
n
+1
is monotonic decreasing andbounded below, and hence show that it converges. Prove thatthe limit is 1.(3) Show that the sequence
a
n
=
1
nn
2
+1
is monotonic increasing (for
n
= 3
,
4
,
5
,...
) and bounded above, and hence show that itconverges. Prove that the limit is 0.(4) The sequence
u
n
is defined by the recursion formula
u
n
+1
=
3
u
n
,
u
1
= 1. Prove that the sequence is monotonic increasingand bounded above, and hence show that it converges. Provethat the limit is 3.(5) Using the Ratio test, determine the convergence or otherwise of the following series:(i)
n
=1
(
n
+ 1)
3

(ii)
n
=1

(You may assume that lim

=
