Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If sum of a_n converges, then lim a_n =0.(as n goes to infinity) If lim a_n =0, then lim ln(1+a_n)=0. If lim ln(1+a_n)=0, then sum of ln(1+a_n) converges.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is not true. Just knowing that the elements of the series converge to 0 does not mean that the series converges. Take 1/n for example where the series diverges.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok thanks i wasn't sure if my reasoning was correct there. What would be the correct reasoning for showing this? you could show that ln(1+a_n) <= a_n for all n>=0
