# Negation of this statement

I am stuck in trying to take the negation of this statement:

$$(\forall \varepsilon>0)(\exists N \in N)(\forall n,m\geq N)(\forall x \in R [|f_n(x)-f_m(x)|< \varepsilon]$$

One of my thoughts was that in order to move the negation inside the brackets, all I need to do is say $$(\exists \varepsilon \leq 0)$$...and everything else remains unchanged.

However, my other thought was to somehow move the statement $$\varepsilon > 0$$ to the end of the original statement and make it: $$(\varepsilon > 0 \Rightarrow |f_n(x)-f_m(x)|< \varepsilon)$$

If you can help me in anyway, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
