Since the real numbers are equivalence classes of convergent Cauchy sequences the result seems fairly obvious, but I was thinking of instead of dealing with equivalence classes I could use the definition of the limit of a sequence and have x be the limit of {a_k}.

I'm having some trouble starting up, though. Do I have to

*find*a sequence that must converge to some arbitrary x to prove its existence?

Thanks!
