schuem – Exam3 Practice Problems – Schultz – (58385) 1 This print-out should have 23 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. 001 10.0 points Determine whether the sequence { a n } con- verges or diverges when a n = ( 1) n p 2 n + 1 5 n + 1 P , and iF it does, fnd its limit. 1. limit = 2 5 2. limit = ± 2 5 3. limit = 1 4. sequence diverges correct 5. limit = 0 Explanation: AFter division, 2 n + 1 5 n + 1 = 2 + 1 n 5 + 1 n . Now 1 n , 1 n 0 as n → ∞ , so lim n →∞ 2 n + 1 5 n + 1 = 2 5 n = 0 . Thus as n → ∞ , the values oF a n oscillate be- tween values ever closer to ± 2 5 . Consequently, the sequence diverges . 002 10.0 points Determine whether the series 3 + 2 + 4 3 + 8 9 + ··· is convergent or divergent, and iF convergent, fnd its sum. 1. convergent with sum = 1 4 2. convergent with sum = 9 correct 3. convergent with sum = 4 4. convergent with sum = 1 9 5. divergent Explanation: The series 3 + 2 + 4 3 + 8 9 + ··· = s n =1 a r n 1 is an infnite geometric series in which a = 3 and r = 2 3 . But such a series is (i) convergent with sum a 1 r when | r | < 1, (ii) divergent when | r | ≥ 1 . Thus the given series is convergent with sum = 9 . 003 10.0 points Determine whether the infnite series s n = 1 ( n + 1) 2 n ( n + 2) converges or diverges, and iF converges, fnd its sum. 1. converges with sum = 1 2 2. converges with sum = 1 8 3. converges with sum = 1 4

schuem – Exam3 Practice Problems – Schultz – (58385) 2 4. diverges correct 5. converges with sum = 1 Explanation: By the Divergence Test, an infnite series n a n diverges when lim n →∞ a n n = 0 . Now, For the given series, a n = ( n + 1) 2 n ( n + 2) = n 2 + 2 n + 1 n 2 + 2 n . But then, lim n →∞ a n = 1 n = 0 . Consequently, the Divergence Test says that the given series diverges . keywords: infnite series, Divergence Test, ra- tional Function 004 10.0 points To apply the root test to an infnite series n a n the value oF ρ = lim n →∞ | a n | 1 /n has to be determined. Compute the value oF ρ For the series s n = 1 p 3 n + 5 4 n P 2 n . 1. ρ = 3 4 2. ρ = 25 9 3. ρ = 9 16 correct 4. ρ = 25 16 5. ρ = 5 4 Explanation: AFter division, 3 n + 5 4 n = 3 + 5 /n 4 , so | a n | 1 /n = ± 3 + 5 /n 4 ² 2 . On the other hand, lim n →∞ 3 + 5 /n 4 = 3 4 . Consequently, ρ = 9 16 . keywords: /* IF you use any oF these, fx the comment symbols. 005 10.0 points Determine whether the series s k = 1 ( 1) k 1 cos ± 1 3 k ² is absolutely convergent, conditionally con- vergent or divergent. 1. absolutely convergent 2. conditionally convergent 3. series is divergent correct Explanation: The given series can be written as s k = 1 ( 1) k 1 a k
schuem – Exam3 Practice Problems – Schultz – (58385) 3 with a k = cos p 1 3 k P > 0 , and so is an alternating series. But lim k →∞ cos p 1 3 k P = 1 , in which case lim k →∞ ( 1)
