For instance, the sequence {1, 12 , 13 , 14 , 15 , . } can be described by giving the following formula for the nth term: an ෇ a¢ a£ a™ 0 1 n We can visualize this sequence by plotting its terms on a number line as in Figure 10(a) or by drawing its graph as in Figure 10(b). Observe from either picture that the terms of the sequence a n ෇ 1͞n are becoming closer and closer to 0 as n increases. In fact, we can find terms as small as we please by making n large enough. We say that the limit of the sequence is 0, and we indicate this by writing a¡ 1 (a) 1 lim nlϱ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 ෇0 n n In general, the notation (b) FIGURE 10 lim a n ෇ L nlϱ is used if the terms a n approach the number L as n becomes large.
