# Advanced Calculus Analysis : Cauchy and Convergent Sequences

We proved the following theorem in the class: "If a>0 and if a sequence... is covergent, then the sequence... is convergent." In proving this theorem, we proved that... is Cauchy instead of proving it converges directly. Why did we have to do that?
