# Prove that $\lim_{n \to \infty} n^k(3 - x_n) = 0$, for any $k \in \mathbb{N}^*$

Let $(x_n)_{n \in \mathbb{N}}$ be a sequence such that $x_{n+1} = \sqrt{3+2x_n}$ and $x_0 \in [0, 3]$. Prove that: $$\lim_{n \to \infty} n^k(3 - x_n) = 0, \, \, \forall \, k \in \mathbb{N}^*$$

I've proved that $(x_n)$ is increasing, bounded and has a limit of $3$, but I haven't managed to prove that the given limit is $0$.

Let $x_n=3-y_n$ and the recursion becomes
$$3-y_{n+1} = \sqrt{9-2 y_n} = 3 \sqrt{1-\frac{2}{9} y_n} \approx 3-\frac13 y_n$$
i.e., for large $n$, $y_{n+1} \approx y_n/3$, or $y_n \approx c \cdot 3^{-n}$, which indeed disappears faster than any power of $n$.
