Sec. 2.1, problem 11. Turn in Friday, Jan. 20.
Assigned Jan. 20
Sec. 2.1, problem 18.
Prove: If a>0, b>0, and a is not equal to b, then sqrt(ab) < (1/2)(a+b).
Suggestion. Assume that sqrt(ab) is greater than or equal to (1/2)(a+b). Square both sides and derive a contradiction.

Sec. 2.3, problems 5, 6, 10. Turn in Friday, Jan. 27.

Sec. 2.4, problems 6 (inf only), 7 (inf only).
Sec. 2.5, problems 3, 10.
Regarding problem 3: In the Nested Intervals Theorem, we let xi = sup(a_n), and we showed that xi is in every I_n. Similarly, if we let eta = inf(b_n), we could show that eta is in every I_n. This problem asks you to show that the intersection of all the I_n's, which by definition is the set of x's such that x is in every I_n, is exactly the closed interval [xi, eta].

Sec. 3.1, problems 5b, 5d, 10. Turn in Friday, Feb. 3.
Assigned Feb. 3
1. Suppose lim(x_n)=x and c is fixed real number. Use the definition of limit (not theorems about limits) to show that lim(cx_n)=cx.
2. Sec. 3.2, problem 7.
3. Sec. 3.3, problem 8.
4. Sec. 3.3, problem 9. Assume that sup A is not an element of A.

1. Sec. 3.5, problem 4: (x_n + y_n) part only.
2. Assume (1) lim (x_n ) = infinity and (2) the sequence (y_n) is bounded. Show that lim (x_n + y_n) = infinity.
3. Suppose (1) x_n > 0 for all n and (2) lim (x_n) = 0. Show that lim (1/x_n) = infinity.

4. Sec. 4.1, problem 8. Problem should say: for any c greater than or equal to 0. See hint in back of book. On this problem it helps to multiply sqrt (x) - sqrt (c) by [sqrt (x) + sqrt (c)] / [sqrt (x) + sqrt (c)].

On problem 8, prove that the answer is yes. Suggestion: Let x be an irrational number. Consider a sequence (r_n) of rational numbers that approach x.

Sec. 5.3, problem 1, 2, 3. Do not turn in.
Sec. 5.3, problems 6, 11. Suggestion for 6: If f(1/2)=f(1), let c=1/2. Otherwise, show that g(0) and g(1/2) have opposite sign, and use Thm. 5.3.5. Suggestion for 11: Show that f(w)<0 and f(w)>0 are both impossible.
