# Find a formula for the real sequence $(a_n)$

Please help me find a formula for the $a_n$ in this sequence, $$1,\, \frac{1}{2\sqrt 2},\, \frac{1}{3\sqrt 3},\, \ldots$$

What do you think the next three terms are? –  Jonas Meyer Oct 2 '12 at 6:22
@JonasMeyer I have thought about it for a while now, I have no clue, tell me please. –  AD. Oct 13 '12 at 12:59

$a_n=?$

$a_1=1=\frac{1}{1\sqrt 1}$,

$a_2=\frac{1}{2\sqrt 2}$,

$a_3=\frac{1}{3\sqrt 3}$,

.......................

$a_n=\frac{1}{n\sqrt n}$.

With this sort of problem, you really only have to come up with some sort of pattern or closed form that fits/describes what you've got so far. There could be many viable patterns--some far more obvious than others--but whatever you pick, you should be fine as long as you can justify it.
