Show that the series X ( 1 g ( n ) ) is convergent. Solution: As g is decreasing and as lim x →∞ g ( x ) = 1 , it follows that g ( n ) 1 > 0 eventually. Let a n = g ( n ) 1 and b n = 1 n 2 > . Then, lim n →∞ a n b n = lim x →∞ g ( x ) 1 1 x 2 = {z} / , L Hosp . lim x →∞ g ( x ) 2 x 3 = lim x →∞ x 3 g ( x ) 2 = 0 . As X b n = X 1 n 2 converges, it follows from the Limit Comparison Test that X ( 1 g ( n ) ) = X a n converges. Question 2. For which values of p is the series X ( 1) n sin 1 n p absolutely con vergent, conditionally convergent, divergent? Solution: Let a n = ( 1) n sin 1 n p If p ≤ 0 then a n does not go to 0 so that by the n thterm test the series diverges. Assume now that p > . Note that n p → ∞ and so sin 1 n p ≥ 0 eventually. Let b n = 1 n p ....
