Unformatted text preview: husain (aih243) HW 2 mann (54675) 1 This print-out should have 18 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. Sections 12.2, 12.3 001 10.0 points Rewrite the finite sum 12 3 + 1 + 16 4 + 1 + 20 5 + 1 + 24 6 + 1 + . . . + 32 8 + 1 using summation notation. 1. 8 summationdisplay k = 3 4 k k + 1 correct 2. 5 summationdisplay k = 0 ( 1) k 3 4 k k + 1 3. 8 summationdisplay k = 3 ( 1) k 3 4 k k + 1 4. 9 summationdisplay k = 4 4 k k + 1 5. 5 summationdisplay k = 0 4 k k + 1 6. 9 summationdisplay k = 4 ( 1) k 3 4 k k + 1 Explanation: The numerators form a sequence 12 , 16 , 20 , 24 , . . . , 32 , while the denominators form a sequence 3 + 1 , 4 + 1 , 5 + 1 , 6 + 1 , . . . , 8 + 1 . Thus the general term in the series is of the form a k = 4 k k + 1 where the sum ranges from k = 3 to k = 8. Consequently, the series becomes 8 summationdisplay k =3 4 k k + 1 in summation notation. 002 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Write each of the following finite sums in summation notation. (i) The sum of the first ten positive odd inte- gers. 1. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 2 i 2. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 ( i 1) 3. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 (2 i 1) correct 4. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 (2 i + 1) 5. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 i Explanation: Positive odd integers are represented by 2 i 1, i = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . . Thus the required sum is given by sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 (2 i 1). 003 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points (ii) The sum of the cubes of the first n positive integers. 1. sum = n summationdisplay i =0 i 2. sum = n summationdisplay i =1 i 3 correct husain (aih243) HW 2 mann (54675) 2 3. None of these 4. sum = n summationdisplay i =0 i 3 5. sum = n summationdisplay i =1 i Explanation: The positive integers are represented by i , i = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . . Thus the required sum is given by sum = n summationdisplay i =1 i 3 . 004 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points (iii) 6 + 10 + 14 + 18 + . . . + 42 . 1. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 6 i 2. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 4 i 3. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 (6 + 4 i ) 4. None of these 5. sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 (2 + 4 i ) correct Explanation: The difference between consecutive terms is 4, so 6+10 + 14 + 18 + + 42 = (2 + 4) + (2 + 8) + (2 + 12)+ . . . + (2 + 40) = sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 (2 + 4 i ). Alternate Solution: 6+10 + 14 + 18 + + 42 = (6 + 0) + (6 + 4) + (6 + 8)+ . . . + (6 + 36) = 10 summationdisplay i =1 [6 + 4 ( i 1)] = sum = 10 summationdisplay i =1 (2 + 4 i ). 005 10.0 points Determine whether the infinite series 3 2 + 4 3 8 9 + 16 27 is convergent or divergent, and if convergent, find its sum....
