Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Determine whether the series X n = 2 ( 1) n n 7 ln n is conditionally convergent, absolutely con vergent, or divergent. 1. series is absolutely convergent 2. series is conditionally convergent 3. series is divergent correct Explanation: By the Divergence Test, a series X n = N ( 1) n a n will be divergent for each fixed choice of N if lim n a n 6 = 0 since it is only the behaviour of a n as n thats important. Now, for the given series, N = 2 and a n = n 7 ln n . But by LHospitals Rule, lim x x ln x = lim x 1 1 /x = . Consequently, by the Divergence Test, the given series is divergent . keywords: 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Which one of the following properties does the series X n = 3 ( 1) n 7 n (ln n ) n have? 1. absolutely convergent correct 2. conditionally convergent 3. divergent Explanation: The given series can be written in the form X n = 3 ( 1) n 7 n (ln n ) n = X n = 3 ( 1) n a n with a n = 7 n (ln n ) n > . Now < a n +1 a n = 7(ln n ) n (ln( n + 1)) n +1 = 7 ln n ln( n + 1) n n 1 ln( n + 1) o < 7 ln( n + 1) . Consequently, lim n a n +1 a n = 0 . In view of the Ratio Test, therefore, the series X n = 3 fl fl fl ( 1) n 7 n (ln n ) n fl fl fl converges, so the given series is absolutely convergent .

But then fl fl fl a n +1 a n fl fl fl = 7( n !) ( n + 1)! = 7 n + 1 , in which case lim n fl fl fl a n +1 a n fl fl fl = 0 < 1 . Consequently, by the Ratio test, the given series is absolutely convergent . keywords: alternating series, absolutely con vergent, divergent, conditionally convergent, Ratio Test 004 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Which one of the following properties does the series X n = 3 ( 1) n 1 n 2 n 2 + n 4 have? 1. absolutely convergent 2. divergent 3. conditionally convergent correct Explanation: The given series has the form X n = 3 ( 1) n 1 n 1 n 2 + n 4 = X n = 3 ( 1) n 1 f ( n ) where f is defined by f ( x ) = x 2 x 2 + x 4 . Notice that x 2 + x 4 > 0 on [3 , ), so the terms in the given series are defined for all n 3. On the other hand, x 2 > 0 on (2 , ), so x > 2 = f ( x ) > ....
