Solutions to 4/15 written hw 7.3.10 P 1 n =1 ln n n diverges by Direct Comparison with the divergent p series P 1 n : : ln n n > 1 n for n > e: You could also use the Limit Comparison Test. lim n !1 (ln n ) =n 1 =n = lim n !1 ln n = 1 ; so you have a BIGGER THAN BIG situation. 7.3.20 P 1 n =1 1 (ln 3) n is a convergent geometric series with r = 1 ln 3 < 1 : 7.3.26 P 1 n =1 2 1+ e n converges by Direct Comparison with the convergent geometric series P 1 n =1 2 e n : 2 1 + e n < 2 e n : You could also apply the Ratio Test to get = 1 =e: Another way to solve this problem would be to apply the LCT using P 1 e n as a benchmark. 7.3.28 P 1 n =1 n n 2 +1 diverges by the LCT with using P 1 n as a benchmark: lim n !1 n n 2 +1 1 n = lim n !1 n 2 n 2 + 1 = 1 : Hence both series diverge. You can also use a direct comparison: n n 2 + 1 > n n 2 + n 2 = 1 2 n : This gives a BIGGER THAN BIG comparison. 7.4.8 P 1 n =1 1 p n 3 +1 converges by Direct Comparison with the convergent p -series P 1 n 3 = 2 : 1 p n 3 + 1 < 1 p n 3 = 1 n 3 = 2 : This gives a SMALLER THAN SMALL comparison. 7.4.12 P 1 n =1 (ln n ) 3 n 3 converges by the LCT with the convergent p series P 1 n 2 : see lim n !1 (ln n ) 3 n 3 1 n 2 = lim n !1 (ln n ) 3 n = lim n !1 3 (ln n ) 2 1 n 1 = lim n !1 3(ln n ) 2 n = lim n !1 6(ln n ) 1 n 1 = lim n !1 6 ln n n =
