Suppose you know that [tex]\left{ a_n \right}[/tex] is a decreasing sequence and all its(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

terms lie between the numbers 5 and 8. Explain why the sequence has a limit. What can

you say about the value of the limit?

My Answer:

This sequence has a limit because it is both bounded and monotonic, as it is stated in the

Monotonic Sequence Theorem. The minimum value of this particular limit must be 5.

My question:

Is that thoroughly answered? Did I miss anything?
