prove (n+1)/(3n+1) converges to 1/3

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have been trying to figure this out for a while. I started out

(n+1)/3n+1)-1/3=(2n+2)/(9n-3) now I don't know how to proceed with the proof. What do I set N equal to? And then how do work it back into my inequality chain? Working this out step by step would be greatly appreciated.
