    for lAn-Ll<E whenever n>N do they mean that when we plug in n to An and subtract the limit it will be less than a positive value..?.. it doenst make sense to me :(

    well, what it means is at a certain number N>n the terms of the sequence approach the number L

    no, n and N refer to the indexing of the terms of the sequence

    these type of things are understood through doing problems; as you advance in calculus it would come to you

    agreed, the idea is fairly simple and can be demonstrated intuitively with a simple drawing
