( b ) Let . Then x =1 is a singularity. Let . Then We consider the following cases: ( i ) When 1- p >0, and converges. ( ii ) When 1- p <0, and diverges. ( iii ) When p =1, . Hence, . In this case, diverges. (40 Marks)Determine convergence or divergence for each of the following series. ( a ) . ¯ ( a ) . ( b ) . ( c ) . ( d )

Unformatted text preview: for . Hence, for , (Method 2: Ordinary Comparison Test) Let , Then for . Since converges, it follows that converges. Another way: for . Since converges, it follows that converges. (Method 3: Ratio Test) . It follows from Ratio Test that the series converges. (Method 4: Root Test) Noting that , we have . It follows that converges. ( b ) Since and diverges, it follows from Limit Comparison Test that diverges. ( c ) Let . Then is continuous since is continuous on and for . Also, , so f is decreasing. Moreover, Hence, and converges. It follows from Integral Test that converges. ( d ) Let . Then . Hence, . By Ratio Test, we have ( i ) If x <1, converges. ( ii ) If x >1, diverges. When x =1, the series becomes . It is known that when p >1, converges and when , diverges. • About this document . .. Next: About this document Kunquan Lan Wed Feb 9 09:35:54 EST 2000...
