 Quote by elizaburlap This is why I thought that the greatest lower bound was one. Because n=1, 1/n=1. as far as I know n cannot be smaller than one as a natural number. Doesn't this make 1 the greatest lower bound??
As Halls mentioned, ##S = \{1,1/2,1/3,\, ...\}##. Plot a few of those points on the ##x## axis. Then remember that a greatest lower bound of a set is at least a lower bound. Then ask yourself if 1 is a lower bound for ##S##.
