@Zarkon @Pippa @Hero we can continue here.

3. bahrom7893

im sorry zarkon, im sure im driving u nuts with these.. a couple more to go and then the computational stuff will begin.

4. Hero

I'm not qualified to help you with this, but, you can gladly tell me which book these questions are coming from.

5. bahrom7893

btw that part a. It's false right? 1/2 is not less than 1/2

6. Zarkon

$\frac{1}{3}+\frac{1}{4}\ge\frac{1}{4}+\frac{1}{4}=\frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}$ do the same with the other sets of numbers....use the smallest number from each group toso that it adds to 1/2

@Hero Calculus - Single Variable and MultiVariable 5th edition, hughes hallet @Zarkon ty. what about part b

8. Hero

Funny, I have that book

9. Zarkon

there are an infinte number of 1/2's you are adding up...therefore the sum is infinity

10. bahrom7893

This was 9.3 #46 hero.

11. Hero

Zarkon is the OS version of wolfram alpha

12. bahrom7893

Two more left Zarkon and I'll hopefully be able to do most of the rest on my own.

13. bahrom7893

YES HE IS!

14. Hero

no she's not

16. Hero

I was trying to be nice.

17. bahrom7893

The series is 1/n, as n approaches infinity, it can never converge.
