# Real Analysis Sequences Questions

#1. Show that every sequence of real numbers contains either a monotonically increasing subsequence or a monotonically decreasing subsequence (or both).

#2. a) Let s_n be the sequence of real numbers defined by s_1 = 1, and s_n+1 = (2s_n + 3)/4. For All n>=1, where s_1 denotes s subscript 1, etc.

b) Show that {s_n} is monotonic and bounded.

c) Evaluate lim s_n as n approaches infinity.
