Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are a lot of different methods for proving different types of convergence, some of which are more appropriate than others for different series constructs. Take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convergence_tests for an overview. If this is in response to a particular assignment or section of a book, I would focus on the methods discussed in the chapter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, at infinity it looks like it approaches 1/3 ..... but I aint sure if that proves convergence or not....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is summation convergense the same as the limit of a horizontal asymptote? I aint really delved into those yet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all the numbers added up together would tend to converge to a number that is slowly and slowerly coming into view...is what I think it means

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I think using the test of divergence and since it does not approach zero as n approaches infinity, it is not convergent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I believe it diverges

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0soo it converges..? and they want the sum of the series..how do u do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it has to go to 0 for it to be considered converging..??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, if a series is convergent then it has to approach zero as n approaches infinity.,but be careful the opposite is not always.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the limit of the summand is undefined or nonzero, that is , then the series cannot converge. In this sense, the partial sums are Cauchy only if this limit exists and is equal to zero. The test is inconclusive if the limit of the summand is zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea i already used wiki..so this one doesnt converge so u cant find its sum rite.?
