# Math Help - Interval of convergence

1. ## Interval of convergence

Find the interval of convergence for the following power series:

I used the ratio test first to get my radius of convergence which I got to be 6 but I think this is where I may have messed up. From there I added 6 to and subtracted 6 from 2, which would make my interval (-4,8) but its not right so can anyone help?
Thanks

2. Post your work to see whats wrong with it.
PS: the Root Test is better for this one.

and remember that: $\lim_{n\to\infty} n^{\frac{1}{n}} = 1$.

3. ## ...

Solution with test root:

$lim_{n\to\infty} \sqrt[n]{\frac{|(x+2)^n|{6^n}}{7n^4}} = lim_{n\to\infty} \frac{6|(x+2)|}{ \sqrt[n]{7n^4}}=\frac{6|x+2|}{lim_{n\to\infty}\sqrt[n]{7n^4}}=\frac{6|(x+2)|}{1}<1$

So, the interval of convergence is:

$\frac{-1}{6}
$\frac{-13}{6}
