Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hint: how many terms are in each element of the sequence, and what are they bounded by?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. There are n terms, each of which is very near 1/n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have the series as \[\lim_{n\to \infty} (\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+1}}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+2}}+....\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+n}})\] Obviosuly each of the term is less than 1/n \[\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+1}}< \frac 1 n \] \[\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+n}}< \frac 1 n\] so whole series sum will be less than \[\frac 1 n + \frac 1 n ....\frac 1 n\] note that there are n terms And if you notice each of the term is greater than 1/(n+1) \[\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+1}}>\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+2n+1}}\] \[\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+n}}>\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+2n+1}}\] so we have \[\frac{1}{n+1}+\frac{1}{n+1}....+\frac{1}{n+1}<\frac 1 {\sqrt{n^2+1}}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+2}}....+\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+n}}\] \[<\frac{1}{n}+\frac{1}{n}.........+\frac{1}{n}\] Now apply the limit \(n\to \infty\) \[\lim_{n\to \infty}(\frac{1}{n+1}+\frac{1}{n+1}....+\frac{1}{n+1})<\] \[\lim_{n\to \infty}(\frac 1 {\sqrt{n^2+1}}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+2}}....+\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2+n}})\] \[<\lim_{n\to \infty}(\frac{1}{n}+\frac{1}{n}.........+\frac{1}{n})\] Evaluate the limits for lower and upper bound. If you get the same limit, then by sandwich theorem, you'll be able to prove. Could you try @graydarl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I mean evaluate these two limits \[\Large {\lim_{n\to \infty}(\frac{1}{n+1}+\frac{1}{n+1}....+\frac{1}{n+1})}\] \[\Large \lim_{n\to \infty}(\frac{1}{n}+\frac{1}{n}.........+\frac{1}{n})\]
