as in |n| < 1
so n ranges from 0 to 1
oh okay
if the interval is (-1) that makes it alternating
so it will be smaller and bigger alternatingly
(-1)^ 2 is positive, (-2) ^ 3 is negative
so this is FALSE?
(-2)^2 i mean
if the common ratio r <1 then each term is smaller that the previous
there are a few cases yeah. if the sequence convergerges or if the sign alternates
wait so its TRUE then???
yup its true
i said wait coz my explanation was incomplete
oh okay haha :P thanks!!! so its definitely TRUE right?
if the absolute value of r is less than 1 |r| < 1 the the geometric series will have a limiting sum...
just to clarify things... n is used for the term number... and r is used for the common ratio ( or multiplication constant)... just to avoid confusion.
k thanks for all the help y'all!
yeah. \[ar ^{n}\] if |r| < 1 it converges and if r is negative, it alternates
not quite a term in a geometric series is found using \[T_{n} = ar^{n -1}\] n is the term number, T is the Term a is the 1st term and r is the common ratio... please get it right @irkiz
k thanks for all the help y'all!
