 Nov 13 comment Given $a_{1}=1, \ a_{n+1}=a_{n}+\frac{1}{a_{n}}$, find $\lim \limits_{n\to\infty}\frac{a_{n}}{n}$ testing the first few elements gives me the impression that $\frac{(a_n)^2}{n}$ is increasing, so I'll guess and say 3.

Nov 13 comment Given $a_{1}=1, \ a_{n+1}=a_{n}+\frac{1}{a_{n}}$, find $\lim \limits_{n\to\infty}\frac{a_{n}}{n}$ that's what I tried by showing $a_{n}\leq n$ but it wasn't tight enough.
