Denote a_i = the i_th digit of pi a_1 = 3 a_2 = 1 … Let r_i = r_(i1)+a_i/(10)^(i1) (for i>= 2) r_1 = 3 r_2 = 3.1 r_3 = 3.14 So…Is Lim (r_n) = pi?_________________人生三大無奈: 搵食ja 犯法呀

THX! I am also working on another prob. Is that possible for a sequence {X_n} that X_i is irrational… but the lim (X_n) is rational?_________________人生三大無奈: 搵食ja 犯法呀

Definitely you can do so:
As in your previous message, we know .
Therefore for any rational , we have , and is an irrational sequence._________________
