comment Sequential compactness in $\mathbb{R}$
Maybe I should have used the notation $f^{-1}\{y_n\}$ to make it more clear that it is a pre-image, rather than an inverse.

@Hayden - Yeah, that actually just occurred to me as I was re-reading my post. Thanks!

Good call. Thanks for your input!

comment $f(r) \leq \int_r^{r+1} f(t)dt$
Nice! Would the statement be true if, instead of $r+1$ as the upper limit of integration, we had $+\infty$?

Great. In the "easy" case, the supremum is infinite, right?

comment Some computation with a power series
Thanks for the response! One question: shouldn't the remainder of our Taylor polynomial be $F^{(k)}(\xi)x^k/k!$ rather than what you have written (without the factorial)?

Haha oops! It would've helped to have more quantifiers. I edited.

comment Maximum among $1, 2^{1/2}, 3^{1/3}, 4^{1/4},…$
It might just be me, but this argument is not satisfactory. Yes, I can look at the graph and say 'it looks bigger at 3', but that is not at all rigorous! If I didn't care about rigor, I could get my calculator to give me decimal approximations to these numbers and call it a day.

comment Maximum among $1, 2^{1/2}, 3^{1/3}, 4^{1/4},…$
Why is it "clear" that $|n^{1/n}-e^{1/e}|$ is minimized when $n=3$? Again, it needs justification.

comment Maximum among $1, 2^{1/2}, 3^{1/3}, 4^{1/4},…$
"The closest number in your list to $e^{1/e}$ is $3^{1/3}$" needs justification.

comment Maximum among $1, 2^{1/2}, 3^{1/3}, 4^{1/4},…$
The above link shows that the maximum of $f(x)$ occurs at $x=e$, so you need to figure out which of $2^{1/2}$ and $3^{1/3}$ is larger.

FYI - you should add the homework tag if you're asking homework questions.
