**LIMIT DEFINITION LIMIT**

**In this discussion, we confront the common understanding that the limit of 1/n as n goes to infinity equals zero. Seems straightforward, right? **

**Consider this: 1/2 + 1/2 equals 1, and 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 equals 1. In general, 1/n added n times equals 1. 0 + ... + 0 equals zero, not one leads us to the realization that the limit of 1/n as n approaches infinity, whatever it may be, is not exactly zero. Remember this perspective the next time someone claims limits like this are precisely zero.**
