I am trying to test this series by the alternating series test: n=1 to infinity I don't really know how to find the limit or how to see if it is decreasing, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, CC

So I basically have: as n goes to infinity which would equal zero and decreasing because the first term is 1/1 then the second is 1/(2*1) and so on?

Oh wow, I didn't even notice that it was . With my hint you can use the alternating series test. You can also note that Or the ratio test even works nice.
Ahh, okay cool. Thanks a ton!
