# Big O Notation Analysis

## Homework Statement

Verify that (n^2 + 3n -3)/n^3 = 0 + O(2/n)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I really don't have an attempt. I understand Big O notation, but I don't know how to verify this.

What does the big O notation mean?

a_n converges to A with a rate of convergence O(b_n). Then you can write a_n=A + O(b_n)

a_n converges to A with a rate of convergence O(b_n). Then you can write a_n=A + O(b_n)
You still didn't say what "converging with a rate of convergence $O(b_n)$" means.

I'm not sure, that's why I'm asking :(

Big O notation tells you about the leading (that is, largest, or most significant or dominant) contribution to the rate of convergence. Often, the rate of convergence is a sum of terms of the form $n^a$ for some number $a$. The leading contribution as $n$ gets large comes from the term with the higest value of $a$ because that term will generally be much bigger than all the others.
