# Monotonic and bounded sequences - Sequence and Series

### Monotonic and bounded sequences

In this section, we will be talking about monotonic and bounded sequences. We will learn that monotonic sequences are sequences which constantly increase or constantly decrease. We also learn that a sequence is bounded above if the sequence has a maximum value, and is bounded below if the sequence has a minimum value. Of course, sequences can be both bounded above and below. Lastly, we will take a look at applying theorem 7, which will help us determine if the sequence is convergent. One important to note from the theorem is that even if theorem 7 does not apply to the sequence, there is a possibility that the sequence is convergent. It's just that the theorem will not be able to show it.
