Trick Question

  1. Apr 16, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the limit of sequence if it converges; otherwise indicate divergence.




    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    The limit of A_n is equal to 6/7 wich is one of the answers but, I thought that if the limit dosen't equal zero then it is divergent? Any help would be great.

    You may be confusing sequences with series. You question involves sequences

    Well now I feel stupid. I can't believe I missed that. For some reason I thought it was saying series. Thanks for pointing that out.

    :rofl: yeah, the trickiest questions are the one where we don't dare to spot the obvious. I can't count how many times this happens to me with math problems.
