Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0n=(1(n1))/(n^(4^(n))) Since n is on the righthand side of the equation, switch the sides so it is on the lefthand side of the equation. (1(n1))/(n^(4^(n)))=n Reduce the expression (1(n1))/(n^(4^(n))) by removing a factor of from the numerator and denominator. (n1)/(n^(4)n^(4))=n Reduce the expression ((n1))/(n^(4)n^(4)) by removing a factor of from the numerator and denominator. (n1)/(n^(8))=n Find the LCD (least common denominator) of ((n1))/(n^(8))+n. Least common denominator: n^(8) Multiply each term in the equation by n^(8) in order to remove all the denominators from the equation. (n1)/(n^(8))*n^(8)=n*n^(8) Simplify the lefthand side of the equation by canceling the common terms. n1=n*n^(8) Multiply n by n^(8) to get n^(9). n1=n^(9) Since n^(9) contains the variable to solve for, move it to the lefthand side of the equation by subtracting n^(9) from both sides. n1n^(9)=0 Move all terms not containing n to the righthand side of the equation. n^(9)+n1=0 Divide each term in the equation by 1. n^(9)n+1=0 The DurandKerner method does not converge for this polynomial. No Convergence

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well we haven't learned that method yet the only ones we can use are geometric series, telescoping series, p series, divergence test, direct comparison test, and limit comparison test......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The factorial function is formally defined by or recursively defined by Both of the above definitions incorporate the instance in the first case by the convention that the product of no numbers at all is 1. This is useful because: There is exactly one permutation of zero objects (with nothing to permute, "everything" is left in place). The recurrence relation (n + 1)! = n! × (n + 1), valid for n > 0, extends to n = 0. It allows for the expression of many formulas, like the exponential function as a power series: It makes many identities in combinatorics valid for all applicable sizes. The number of ways to choose 0 elements from the empty set is . More generally, the number of ways to choose (all) n elements among a set of n is . The factorial function can also be defined for noninteger values using more advanced mathematics, detailed in the section below. This more generalized definition is used by advanced calculators and mathematical software such as Maple or Mathematica.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The first series is ∑1/4^n, which is convergent: 1/4 + 1/16 + 1/64 + ... (It converges to 1/3, by the way.) The second series is ∑1/n*4^n, which also has to be convergent, since each term after the first one is smaller than the corresponding term in the first series. So, you have the sum (or difference, if you prefer) of two convergent series, which is therefore convergent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know what test to use to determine if this is convergent or divergent...\[\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \sin (1\n)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We know that 0 < (n  1) < n, ∀n ≥ 2. Hence √(n)/(n  1) > √(n)/n > 0, ∀n ≥ 2. But √(n)/n = 1/√(n) = 1/[n^(1/2)], so √(n)/(n  1) > 1/[n^(1/2)] > 0, ∀n ≥ 2. Σ{n=2 to ∞}{1/[n^(1/2)]} is a pseries with p = 1/2 ≤ 1, so it diverges. Thus Σ{n=2 to ∞}{√(n)/(n  1)} also diverges by the comparison test

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The Divergence Test: If limn!1 an 6= 0 or does not exist then P1 n=1 an is divergent. The Integral Test: If f(x) is continous, positive and decreasing on [1;1] and f(n) = an then P1 n=1 an is convergent if and only if R 1 1 f(x)dx is convergent. The Comparison Test: If an 0 and bn 0 for all n then: (a) if P bn is convergent and an bn for all n, then P an is also convergent (b) if P bn is divergent and an bn for all n, then P an is also divergent The Limit Comparison Test: If an 0 and bn 0 for all n and limn!1 an bn = c > 0 then either both P1 n=1 an and P1 n=1 bn are convergent or both are divergent. The Alternating Series Test: Suppose we have P1 n=1(1)nbn and bn > 0. If bn+1 bn for all n and limn!1 bn = 0 then the series P1 n=1(1)nbn is convergent. The Ratio test: If lim n!1 an+1 an = 8>< >: L > 1 the series P1 n=1 an is divergent; L < 1 P1 n=1 an is absolutely convergent; = 1 the Ratio Test is inconclusive Two things good to know: Def. We say P1 n=1 an is absolutely convergent if P1 n=1 janj is convergent. Thm. If P1 n=1 an is absolutely convergent then it is convergent. 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We would like to show that (1) 1X n=1 (1)n 2n2 + 3 (n + 1)(n + 3) is divergent (2) 1X n=1 ln(n) n + 1 is divergent (3) 1X n=1 en is convergent (4) 1X n=1 sin(n) n2 is absolutely convergent. Is it convergent? (5) 1X n=1 (1)n n + 1 n2 is convergent but not absolutely convergent (6) 1X n=1 (1)n n3n! 3n is divergent us
