# Monotone Convergence Theorem (Real Analysis)/Examples

## Examples of Use of Monotone Convergence Theorem (Real Analysis)

### Example: $\dfrac {n - 1} n$

The sequence $\sequence {a_n}_{n \mathop \ge 1}$ defined as:

$a_n = \dfrac {n - 1} n$

is convergent to the limit $1$.

### Example: $x^n$ for $0 < x < 1$

Let $x \in \R$ such that $0 < x < 1$.

The sequence $\sequence {a_n}_{n \mathop \ge 1}$ defined as:

$a_n = x^n$

is convergent to the limit $0$.
