calculus II  is the sequence of an converges, then the limit as k> infinity =0.
Corollary : if the limit of ak as k> infinity is not equal to 0, then the summation of ak diverges.
This corollary is confusing because what if the limit of ak is equal to 0 wouldn't it by then converge?
I got confused

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the point is k approaches infinity, it never actually gets there so your value never actually gets to 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, I know it'll diverege if it tends to infinity, but the prof said that if the limit of ak =0 then that doesn't mean that it converges. Isn't it confusing? because the first rule states that if the sequence converges , that means that the limit = 0. lost lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0he said the contrapositive of the corollary is false, why?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well maybe he is saying that if the limit =0 then the corollary is false because the corollary is basically saying that 0 is an outlier (the dotted line, cant remmebr the correct name) and if it actually gets there then that isnt an outlier, rendering the first statement false?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, what are you trying to say?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im saying if the first thing claims that you cant be at 0 and the second thing says that you are at 0 then the first thing is lieing

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but the first thing says that it is at 0

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0an the first rule is correct

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, the first part says you get really close to 0, you never actually get there

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes I know, it'll "approach" zero, still this says that it'll converge

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, at infinity... which you cant get to, meaning you cant get to 0. and if your at 0 then your limit reached infinity. thats pretty intense if you reach an unreachable number

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which part are you talking abt lol, the first rule? or the corollary?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're running in circles >_<

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0exactly, the circles is on purpose. the second statement renders the first one false.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0convergence means that the sequence will end with a finite number while divergence means that the sequence will reach infinity or will have an alternating endless value.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've been in enough circles already x_x with my prof

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how does this corollary work? if it's not equal to 0, then I agree, it diverges, but what if it actually is = 0?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldn't that mean that it'll converge?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was told that it's false, it won't converge , we'll actually don't know what it will do, but WHY?! LOL

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what difference does it make?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess im confused by the original statement. but if you have a number lim approaching infinity = anything. it never reaches that "anything" so i'd say it does NOT converge

anonymous

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no... last day I will stdy like mad.. read calculus, STEP III, and stuff like that, I need to fill my brain with info

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0did you study? Yes/No?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, I studied, but there are still somethings I need to revise. But I am just afraid I can do worse than other 40 guys. Because there are alot of applicants, like 300 and out of those 300, 40 best will be taken.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you really believe that you won't be one of these 40 guys?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, I dont know, it is imposible to know the future, those 300 applicants might be studing really hard, and might be better prepared. Of course, anything can happen. I just hope I get in, because if I don't, I will have to quickly figure out what to do :)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you are going to be one of those 40 guys. :) Put that in mind. A person that knows what he/she wants, and is clear about it, will reach what he/she wants :) and you will

anonymous

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, I was thinking in a simmilar way, just that I got this idea, WHAT IF all of those 300 guys KNOWs what they want and are clear about it? it is more about knowledge+intelligence than the desire to pass.... I think...

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why do we want to think of other people's intelligence and deny ours? did you really forget what you are capable of doing?
