and i use the trick which in the attachment ..

is my solution correct ?

Yeah ..

Actually if the series Sigma(an) is convergent then the limit of an = 0 - Nov 11th 2009, 09:25 AMDrexel28
Yes that is true.

So for any spectators what is going on is that**TWiX**is just making the observation that if converges it is necessary for . And of course there are a lot of ways to prove that converges thaty*may*be easier than actually computing .

Compute**Example:**

Note that__Solution:__

Therefore converges by the ratio test. Thus by definition
