Unformatted text preview: Version 060 EXAM 3 Radin (57410) 1 This printout should have 20 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Determine whether the sequence { a n } con verges or diverges when a n = ( 1) n 1 n n 2 + 2 , and if it converges, find the limit. 1. converges with limit = 0 correct 2. converges with limit = 1 2 3. converges with limit = 1 2 4. converges with limit = 2 5. converges with limit = 2 6. sequence diverges Explanation: After division, a n = ( 1) n 1 n n 2 + 2 = ( 1) n 1 n + 2 n . Consequently,  a n  = 1 n + 2 n 1 n . But 1 /n 0 as n , so by the Squeeze theorem, lim n  a n  = 0 . But  a n  a n  a n  , so by the Squeeze theorem again the given sequence { a n } converges and has limit = 0 . keywords: 002 10.0 points Which of the following sequences converge? A . braceleftbigg 5 e n 4 + e n bracerightbigg B . braceleftbigg e n + 5 3 n + 2 bracerightbigg 1. A only correct 2. neither of them 3. B only 4. both A and B Explanation: A . After simplification, 5 e n 4 + e n = 5 4 e n + 1 . Thus 5 e n 4 + e n 5 as n since e x 0 as x . B . To test for convergence of the sequence braceleftbigg e n + 5 3 n + 2 bracerightbigg we use LHospitals Rule with f ( x ) = e x + 5 , g ( x ) = 3 x + 2 since f ( x ) , g ( x ) as x . Thus lim n e n 3 n + 2 = lim x f ( x ) g ( x ) . Version 060 EXAM 3 Radin (57410) 2 But f ( x ) g ( x ) = e x 3 as n . Consequently, only A converges . 003 10.0 points Determine if the sequence { a n } converges, and if it does, find its limit when a n = parenleftbigg 1 3 4 n parenrightbigg 5 n . 1. limit = e 15 4 correct 2. limit = e 3 4 3. limit = e 15 4 4. limit = 1 5. the sequence diverges 6. limit = e 3 4 7. limit = e 12 5 Explanation: We know that lim n parenleftBig 1 x n parenrightBig n = e x . Now a n = bracketleftbiggparenleftbigg 1 3 4 n parenrightbigg n bracketrightbigg 5 . By the properties of limits, therefore, lim n a n = bracketleftbigg lim n parenleftbigg 1 3 4 n parenrightbigg n bracketrightbigg 5 , so the sequence converges and has limit = parenleftBig e 3 4 parenrightBig 5 = e 15 4 . 004 10.0 points Determine whether the infinite series summationdisplay n = 1 ln parenleftbigg 4 n 5 n + 4 parenrightbigg is convergent or divergent, and if convergent, find its sum. 1. converges with sum = ln parenleftbigg 4 5 parenrightbigg 2. converges with sum = ln parenleftbigg 4 9 parenrightbigg 3. converges with sum = ln parenleftbigg 5 4 parenrightbigg 4. diverges correct 5. converges with sum = ln parenleftbigg 9 4 parenrightbigg Explanation: An infinite series summationdisplay a n diverges when lim n a n negationslash = 0 ....
