Two mathematical objects are convergent if they draw close to each other. For example, a function is a convergent function if the value of the function draws close to a particular line as the value of the independent variable tends towards positive or negative infinity. When a mathematical object A approaches a mathematical object B, say "A converges to B."
An infinite series is a convergent series if the series draws close to a particular value. A sequence is a convergent sequence if the limit of the sequence is a particular value.
