I just did this to get the ball rolling. Page is of low grade due to ease of proof.

## Statement

If a sequence [ilmath](a_n)_{n=1}^\infty[/ilmath] in a metric space [ilmath](X,d)[/ilmath] converges (to [ilmath]a[/ilmath]) then it is also a Cauchy sequence. Symbolically that is:

- [ilmath]\Big(\forall\epsilon>0\ \exists N\in\mathbb{N}\ \forall n\in\mathbb{N}[n>N\implies d(a_{n},a)]\Big)\implies[/ilmath][ilmath]\Big(\forall\epsilon>0\ \exists N\in\mathbb{N}\ \forall n,m\in\mathbb{N}[n\ge m>N\implies d(x_n,x_m)<\epsilon]\Big)[/ilmath]

## Proof

(Unknown grade)

This page requires one or more proofs to be filled in, it is on a to-do list for being expanded with them.

Please note that this does not mean the content is unreliable. Unless there are any caveats mentioned below the statement comes from a reliable source. As always, Warnings and limitations will be clearly shown and possibly highlighted if very important (see template:Caution et al).
