2. (10.1) State whether the sequence converges or diverges? If the sequence converges, find its limit. 1 2 2 4 2 3 2 2 2 n n n n Solution: It converges. 2 1 2 3 2 0 0 2 0 0 3 lim 2 / 1 / 2 2 ) / 4 ( ) / 2 ( 3 lim 2 / ) 1 2 2 ( / ) 4 2 3 ( lim 2 1 2 2 4 2 3 lim 2 1 2 2 4 2 3 2 lim 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n n 3 .(10.2) Does the series definitely diverge by the n th Term Test?

Note: The n th Term Test can only identify divergence. No convergence can be determined by this divergence test.
