Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this case you would get \(a_n=\frac{n}{n+1}\) which is bounded below by \(1\) since \(\frac{n}{n+1}<1\) for all \(n\) and \(\lim_{n\to \infty}\frac{n}{n+1}=1\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is monotone increasing as you can check by taking the derivative and seeing that is always positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes alpha* n/(n+1) limi\[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}{n/n+1}\] \[n/n(1+1/n)=1/(1+1/n)\] take limit to infinity \[1/(1+0)=1\] \[\alpha*1=alpha\]
