Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Find the n th term, a n , of an infinite series ∑ ∞ n = 1 a n when the n th partial sum, S n , of the series is given by S n = 4 n n + 1 . 1. a n = 5 n ( n + 1) 2. a n = 5 2 n 3. a n = 2 n 4. a n = 4 n ( n + 1) correct 5. a n = 5 2 n 2 6. a n = 2 n 2 Explanation: Since S n = a 1 + a 2 + ··· + a n , we see that a 1 = S 1 , a n = S n − S n − 1 ( n > 1) . But S n = 4 n n + 1 = 4 − 4 n + 1 . Thus a 1 = 2, while a n = 4 n − 4 n + 1 , ( n > 1) . Consequently, a n = 4 n − 4 n + 1 = 4 n ( n + 1) for all n . 002 10.0 points Let f be a continuous, positive, decreasing function on [3 , ∞ ). Compare the values of the integral A = integraldisplay 20 3 f ( t ) dt and the series B = 19 summationdisplay n = 3 f ( n ) . 1. A = B 2. A > B 3. A < B correct Explanation: In the figure 3 4 5 6 7 . . . a 3 a 4 a 5 a 6 the bold line is the graph of f on [3 , ∞ ) and the areas of the rectangles the terms in the series ∞ summationdisplay n = 3 a n , a n = f ( n ) . Clearly from this figure we see that f (3) > integraldisplay 4 3 f ( t ) dt, f (4) > integraldisplay 5 4 f ( t ) dt , Valencia (drv252) – Review 3 – Zheng – (58355) 2 while f (5) > integraldisplay 6 5 f ( t ) dt, f (6) > integraldisplay 7 6 f ( t ) dt , and so on. Consequently, A < B . keywords: 003 10.0 points To apply the root test to an infinite series ∑ k a k , the value of ρ = lim k →∞  a k  1 /k has to be determined. Compute the value of ρ for the series ∞ summationdisplay k = 1 3 k k (ln k + 7) k . 1. ρ = 7 2. ρ = 21 3. ρ = 3 4. ρ = ∞ 5. ρ = 0 correct Explanation: For the given series ( a k ) 1 /k = 3 1 /k parenleftbigg ln k + 7 k parenrightbigg = 3 1 /k parenleftbigg ln k k + 7 k parenrightbigg . But 3 1 /k −→ 1 , ln k k −→ as k → ∞ . Consequently, ρ = 0 . 004 10.0 points Determine whether the series ∞ summationdisplay n =0 parenleftbigg 4 7 parenrightbigg n/ 2 is convergent or divergent, and if convergent, find its sum. 1. convergent with sum = √ 7 − 2 √ 7 2. convergent with sum = √ 7 − 2 2 3. convergent with sum = √ 7 √ 7 − 2 correct 4. convergent with sum = 2 √ 7 − 2 5. divergent Explanation: The infinite series ∞ summationdisplay n =0 parenleftbigg 4 7 parenrightbigg n/ 2 is an infinite geometric series ∑ ∞ n =0 ar n with a = 1 and r = 2 / √ 7. But ∑ ∞ n =0 ar n is (i) convergent with sum a 1 − r when  r  < 1, and (ii) divergent when  r  ≥ 1 . So the given series is convergent with sum = √ 7 √ 7 − 2 ....
