i)Prove, by using the formal deﬁnition of limit, that the sequence
(1 + 5n)/n + n i / n + 3 n ∈ N
has limit 5 + ı.
ii)Prove that the fact that the above sequence converges to 5 + i implies that the sequence
square root of ( [(1 + 5n)^2 / n^2] + [n^2 / (n+3)^2] ), n ∈ N
converges to
√26.
Note: In this question you can assume without proof that the inequalities
z − w ≤ z + w ≤ z + w hold for all z and w in C
can anyone help me with this example? thanks

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the first part, start with the rearrangement,\[\frac{1+5n}{n}+\frac{n}{n+3}i=\frac{\frac{1}{n}+5}{1}+\frac{1}{1+\frac{1}{n}}i\]I don't know how fundamental an approach you have to take, but you can use the limit laws to write,\[\lim_{n>\infty}\left( \frac{\frac{1}{n}+5}{1}+\frac{1}{1+\frac{1}{n}} \right)\]\[=\frac{(\lim_{n>\infty}\frac{1}{n})+5}{1}+\frac{1}{1+(\lim_{n>\infty}\frac{1}{n})}\]Now choose \[\epsilon >0\]small. Then for \[\frac{1}{\epsilon}\]choose N such that N is the first integer greater than 1/(epsilon). Then \[\forall n>N ( n>\frac{1}{\epsilon} \iff \epsilon >\frac{1}{n}\iff \frac{1}{n}< \epsilon)\]Since \[n>0 \rightarrow \frac{1}{n}0=\left \frac{1}{n}0 \right\]and since \[\frac{1}{n}0< \epsilon\]it follows,\[\left \frac{1}{n} 0\right< \epsilon\]Hence by the definition of the limit, \[\frac{1}{n} \rightarrow 0 \]as \[n \rightarrow \infty.\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats just taking limits tho isnt it. Thats not using the definition of the limit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The definition is used to prove 1/n goes to zero as n goes to infinity.
