    \[\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} {\frac{n^2}{2^n}}\]

    Check it with the following test : \[\lim_{n\to \infty} {\frac{u^{n+1}}{u^n}}\]

    sr, it is \[\lim_{n\to \infty} {\frac{u_{n+1}}{u_n}}\]

    if this limit < 1, the series is converge

    It seems to be a ratio test :-? may be differ name, display ratio test here

    given sumation A sub n. let the ratio= lim n goes to infinity of absolute val of A sub n +1 / A sub n then if ratio<1 series Coverges Absloutely ratio>1, diverges ratio=1, try diff test

    \[\lim_{n\to \infty} {\frac{\frac{(n+1)^2}{2^{n+1}}}{\frac{n^2}{2^n}}}=\lim_{n\to \infty} {\frac{(n+1)^2}{2n^2}}=\frac{1}{2}<1\]

    I don't understand what you say, but if this limit <1, you can deduce this series converges. Moreover, it is absolute converge because \[\frac{n^2}{2^n}>0\]

    how do you get that second part of the limit?

    \[\lim_{n\to \infty} {\frac{(n+1)^2}{2n^2}}=\frac{1}{2}\]???

    It means \[\frac{(n+1)^2}{2^{n+1}}.\frac{2^n}{n^2}\] That's Ok?
