1. Show that the sequence an = sin(sin(. . . sin(1))) converges and find its limit.

Hint. Recall that sin θ < θ for any angle θ > 0.
Definition. Given a sequence of real numbers (an ), we define a new sequence of partial

P
ak . If this new sequence (sn ) converges, we say that the series
sums (sn ) by the rule sn =
k=1
∞
P
ak converges. In this case the limit lim sn is called the sum of the series. Otherwise, the
k=1
series is said to diverge.
Example1 . Let an = rn for some fixed real number r and n ∈ N ∪ {0}. Then the series

P k
r is called the geometric series and its n-th partial sum is equal to sn = 1 + r + · · · + rn =

If |r| < 1, then this series converges and its sum is equal to
