## anonymous 4 years ago I have x_n =[1/sqrt(2)+1/sqrt(3)+....+1/sqrt(n)]/sqrt(n) I must find lim of a_n with stoltz-cesaro so [1/sqrt(2)+1/sqrt(3)+....+1/sqrt(n)]=a_n and sqrt(n) = b_n and in b_n -> infinity i must show that lim a_n/b_n has the same limit as [a_(n+1) -a_(n)]/[b_(n+1) - b_(n)]

are you asked to prove stoltz-cesaro or just apply it here? if it's the latter then just take your limit: $\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ a_{n+1} - a_n }{ b_{n+1} - b_n } = \lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\frac{1}{\sqrt{n+1}}}{\sqrt{n+1}-\sqrt{n}}$ then just rationalize the denominator and you should get a pretty simple answer

it's good i used your lim and i got $1 + \frac{ \sqrt{n} }{ \sqrt{n+1} }$ what can i do next this is not looking like a final form and i have a hint that the answer is two, can this be true?

ugh take the limit? and the 2nd term is 1 when u do that

4. anonymous

is not infinity over infinity? i am just asking i don' t know

ok when n is going to infinity, that 1 in n+1 becomes negligible, so pretty much u have sqrt(n)/sqrt(n), which is just 1.

i understood, thank you very much :D
