Problem Set 10 (complete) Due: 11/17/2017. Board Presentation: 11/17/2017

  1. Prove Prop. 10.23.v
  2. Prove The. 10.26
  3. Let $(a_n)$ be a sequence. Consider the sequence of even-indexed terms, $(a_{2n})$, and the sequence of odd-indexed terms, $(a_{2n+1})$. Prove that if both $(a_{2n})$ and $(a_{2n+1})$ converge to $L$, then $(a_n)$ converges to $L$.
  4. Let $q_n=\displaystyle\frac{f_n}{f_{n+1}}$, where $f_n$ is the $n$-th Fibonacci number. Show that the sequence $(q_n)$ converges. What value does it converge to?

  1. Prove Prop. 8.50
  2. Prove that function composition is associative, when defined.
  3. Let $A,B,C$ be sets and $f:A\to B$ and $g:B\to C$ functions. Prove that if $g\circ f$ is surjective then $g$ is surjective. Give an example when $g\circ f$ is surjective, but $f$ is not.
