Infinite? and how to demostrate it?
hartnn
  • hartnn
which progression is the sequence in ?
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
The question: 1. Determine if the next sequence has a limit (demostrate it) and determine it (hint:find the general term) c) 1,1 + 2,1 + 2 + 3,1 + 2 + 3, + 4...

I cant find any order...
hartnn
  • hartnn
each term is just the sum of '1st n natural numbers'
hartnn
  • hartnn
which is n(n+1)/2
hartnn
  • hartnn
thats your general term \(a_n =n(n+1)/2\)
hartnn
  • hartnn
how do you find whether next sequence has a limit ?
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
Why is that the general term?
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
a1=1(1+1)/2=2/2=1 Does not apply...
hartnn
  • hartnn
1st term is indeed 1 right ? 1, 1+2 , 1+2+3 , .... 1,3,6, 10,...
hartnn
  • hartnn
and each term is sum of 1st n natural numbers 1st term = 1 2nd term = sum of 1st 2 natural numbers =1+2 =3 and so on
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
Oh...now I understand! Give me a minute

Cant you add the series plus iteslf? like this: Sn= 1 + 3 + 6 + 10 + ... + n-2 + n-1 + n Sn= n + n-1 + n-2 +...+ 6 + 3 + 1
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
So: 2Sn= (n+1) + (n+2) + (n+4)...ehm...this is not going right
hartnn
  • hartnn
so you want to find the sum ?
hartnn
  • hartnn
\(\Large (1/2)\sum (n^2+n) = (1/2)\sum n^2+(1/2)\sum n=...?\)
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
Oh...I thought that I could add Sn + Sn, and then divide them by two to get the general term
hartnn
  • hartnn
possible but i don't think its that easy....
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
then how to get the limit?
hartnn
  • hartnn
how do you find whether next sequence has a limit ? i may know it, but not in these "limit of next sequence" terms ...
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
When it says "the next sequence" it refers to the one I put
hartnn
  • hartnn
ok, so you just want to find whether the sum converges or not ?
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
Look, I have 5 exercises 1. \[\left( -1 \right)^{n}\left( \frac{ 5n+4 }{ 2n } \right)\] For this one we saw that the 4 will be nothing in comparison so the limit without the -1n is 5/2. It has no limit because it is ocilating. 2. \[2^{-1}\times2^{2}\times2^{-3}...\] Because there is a negative sign, it will change, so there is no limit
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
What means converges?
hartnn
  • hartnn
sum converge means sum = finite
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
I want to know if it has a limit and to demostrate and determine it. I think that for this infinite is the limit, am I right?
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes, it is infinite
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
Thanks :)

  • osanseviero
How did you wrote the general term? Is there a mathematical way to get it?
hartnn
  • hartnn
the sum of 1st n natural numbers ? that you can find by your method, Sn = 1+2+3+....n Sn = n+n-1 +n-2 +...3+2+1 2Sn = (1+n)+ (1+n) +..... so, each pair sum is (1+n) and there are n terms so, 2Sn = n (n+1)
hartnn
  • hartnn
so, sum of 1st n natural numbers = n (n+1)/2
hartnn
  • hartnn
that became your general term and for your sequence, you need to sum this, and whne n becomes large the sum goes on increaseing which menas this progression has no limit.

sorry for the typos :P

Thanks for a lot

\[an?\left\{ an=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\left( a _{n-1} + \frac{ 10 }{ a _{n-1} }\right) \right\} for n \ge2\]
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
that is an =
hartnn
  • hartnn
have you solved such problems, with a (n-1) , before.... because i just could think of finding, a1,a2,a3...and see whether there's any pattern...
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
ok, let me try
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
but I dont have a1
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
this is just telling you that the new value is the last one added by 10 divded by iteslf \[\left( a ^{2} +\frac{ 10 }{ a ^{2} }\right)\] divided by two
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes, i though it was already given....
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
nope :/
osanseviero
  • osanseviero
So can it be determined with the things given?
hartnn
  • hartnn
i am not sure about this....can you ask in new post so that others can try.....sorry.
