What is meant by the limit of an infinite sequence?
1 Answer
The limit of an infinite sequence tells us about the long term behaviour of it.
Given a sequence of real numbers
Two simple examples:

Consider the sequence
#1/n# . It's easy to see that it's limit is#0# . In fact, given any positive value close to#0# , we can alway find a great enough value of#n# such that#1/n# is less than this given value, wich means that it's limit must be less or equal to zero. Also, every term of the sequence is greater then zero, so it's limit must be greater or equal to zero. Therefore, it is#0# . 
Take the constant sequence
#1# . That is, for any given value of#n# , the term#a_n# of the sequence is equal to#1# . It's clear that no matter how big we make#n# the value of the sequence is#1# . So it's limit is#1# .
For a more rigorous definition, let
This definition is equivalent to the informal definition given above, except that we don't need to impose unicity for the limit (it can be deduced).
