Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we continue to sub larger values of n we find that the denominator heads to infinity which means this functions converges onto 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats it? you can take the limit of it? ok then thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not really. If the limit as n goes to infinity is 0, that means there still a possibility to be convergent or divergent. An applicable test to this series is the ratio test.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you take the limit of a(n+1) divided by a(n)..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep as n goes to infinity. If the value of the limit is less than one, then it's absolutely convergent.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The limit is equal to 1/3, and hence the series converges. I can do the steps if you like.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got it! but i have another question..how do you find the radius of convergence? what does that even mean?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In power series, there is a radius of convergence. That means a domain within the radius at which the series will converge.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do we do the ratio test again and the limit we get is L and we just find 1/L and thats the radius of convergence??
