Q: prove that if An tends to 0 then 1/An tends to infinity. This is intuitively an easy concept to understand however how would i go about proving it. I know that the definition of infinity is for a sequence Xn, for all values of K greater than 0 there exists an n greater than N such that Xn is greater than K.

The basic idea is that for given k there exists an N so that for $\displaystyle n>N,\ A_n< \frac{1}{k}$
