\text{Consider the sequence {n/ 2n} = { 0, 1/2, 1/2, 3/8, 1/4, 5/32, ...}. The terms get smaller and smaller.}\\

\\

\text{we can easily show that} \ n/2^{n}<=1/n \ \forall n>3 \\

\text{from the fact that} \ n^{2}<=2^{n} \ \text{(insert proof by induction here)}\\

then \ for \ \epsilon > 0 \ choose \ N = max\{3,1/\epsilon\} \\

\text{The idea is that for all n>N, we will have} \ 1/n<1/N< \epsilon. \\

\text{The problem is I think N needs to be greater than the max. i.e. } \ N> max\{3,1/\epsilon\} \ for \ this \ to \ work \\

\\

\text{otherwise we'll end up with a case where} \ 1/N= \epsilon
