Unformatted text preview: k (1 + 1 /k ) k k =  x  lim k 1 + 1 k k = e  x  This means that the series converges when e  x  < 1, that is, when  x  < 1 /e . This means the radius of convergence is 1 /e . NOTE: In particular, this means that when x = 1, the ratio test gives e as the limit and so k =1 k k k ! does NOT converge. For those of you that I talked to today, this means you cant just do a comparison test with this series in problem 1 (since it is less than something that diverges the comparison does not give you any information). 1...
