a.-8192 b.1/10 c.32,768 d.does not exist

so the common ratio is \(-4\) what do you know about the condition for convergence of geometric series ?

so d is my answer? because if its not. what am i missing or doing wrong?

Notice that the terms itself are alternating and blowing up : 1/2 -2 8 -32 128 ..... . so intuitively it appears that the sum must not converge, that is the sum `does not exist`

if you look up ur notes, im sure you will find a nice criterian for convergence of geometric series

we aren't using a book. just worksheets with formulas on them.

Here is the test for geometric series : If the common ratio is between -1 and 1, then the sum converges, otherwise the sum doesn't converge.
