Limits of convergent sequences

  1. Mar 24, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    an= (n/n+2)^n

    ANS: 1/e^2

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I was told this was convergent and I need to find the limit of the sequence. How do I do this, as I seem to keep getting that this is divergent. Isn't it divergent to infinity? Or am I missing something?

    Actually, this was silly of me. I figured it out.

    Good. But as a reminder, ##\frac n n +2 = 1+2 = 3## so ##a_n = 3^n##. If you meant something else you should either use Latex or use proper parentheses.
