Read Sections 2.52.6.
1. Do Exercise 2.4.2. (Hint for (b): use MCT to prove
$(y_n)$ converges.)

1. Do Exercise 2.6.2 (a) (c).
2. Do Exercise 2.6.4 (c).
(Where the author says ``Decide whether each
of the following sequences is a Cauchy sequence'', interpret this
to mean ``Decide whether each

1. Do Exercise 3.2.3.
2. Do Exercise 3.3.4.
3. Do Exercise 3.3.6. Explain why the statements
