Serge LangUndergraduate Analysis Chapter Ⅷ §1 Exe4

Let{Xn} be a sequence in a normed vector space E such that {Xn} converges to v. Let S be the set consisting of all v and Xn.

Show that S is compact.

2. Relevant equations

None

3. The attempt at a solution

I guess that maybe it is useful to consider it from the aspect of the definition of compactness,i.e. every sequence of elements of S has a convergent subsequence whose limit is in S. But I coudn't convince that why there must be such a convergent subsequence in every sequence, you know, some sequences are not the given ones that converge.
