I said that's one of the conditions. The terms have to go to zero for the series to converge, but obviously it alone doesn't imply convergence.
I simply don't want people to think that the terms going to zero implies convergence! It was the way it was stated - those that don't know might find the implication.
Determine whether the series is convergent or divergent. If it is convergent, find its sum. If it is divergent, enter NONE.
i thought it was 0..that's wrong help please?
@ Danny & redsoxfan325
What are you both talking about?
There is nothing in that post about terms of the series converging to zero.
The OP did think that the sum of the series is zero.

My comment was not to the OP but for those reading this thread. I often see that student's think that terms going to zero imply convergence. I just wanted to re-iterate that that is not necessarily true - that's all.
