If (f) is the part you are having trouble with, then presumably you have already proved that [itex]2x_n^2 (2n1)x (n+1)= 0[/itex] (part (e)). Now you want to find the smallest n such that [itex]x_n< n+ 0.05[/itex]. You could, for example, solve that using the quadrative formula and compare the solutions to n+ 0.05. Have you calculated some values of [itex]x_n[/itex]? What are [itex]x_0[/itex] [itex]x_1[/itex], etc.?
