2 Determine whether the series X k n X 3 (C) 4 n = 15 k = 1 (k + 2)3 k converge(s)? converges or diverges. 1. series is divergent 2. series is convergent correct Explanation: We use the Limit Comparison Test with k 1 a k = , b k =. (k + 2)3 k 3 k For lim a k = lim k = 1 > 0 . k → ∞ b k k →∞ k + 2 Thus the series k X =1 (k + k 2)3 k converges if and only if the series X 1 k = 1 3 k converges. But this last series is a geometric series with |r| = 1 3 < 1 , hence convergent. Consequently, the given series is series is convergent . 004 10.0 points Which of the following series (A) n X =1 3n 2 2 n + 6 (B) 5 2 n n X =1 1. A and B only 2. A, B, and C 3. B and C only correct 4. C only 5. B only Explanation: (A) Because of the way the n TH term is defined as a quotient of polynomials in the series, use of the integral test is suggested. Set 2x f (x) = 3x 2 + 6 . Then f is continuous, positive and decreasing on [1, ∞); thus X 2n n = 1 3n 2 + 6 converges if and only if the improper integral 2 x 1 3x 2 + 6 dx converges, which requires us to evaluate the integral n 2 x I n = 1 3x 2 + 6 dx . Now after substitution (set u = x
