Just because a term "goes to 0", that does't mean you can ignore it in the sum. Its values for finite n are NOT 0 and will affect the sum. For example, 1/n goes to 0 but goes to infinity.

Which is the correct method to reach to the answer then?

I don't think this limit does go to ...

The limit of a sum is the sum of the limits, and if you evaluate the limit of each term using L'Hospital's Rule, you should find each term .

So the limit should be ... - Jan 25th 2011, 06:08 AMSENTINEL4

The problem is to find [if it exists...] the limit of the sequence...

(1)

It is evident from (1) that, because is the sum of n positive terms and for all k is for all n will be . But for all k is also...

(2)

... so that...

(3)

The first ten are...

Kind regards

If is the limit of (the given sequence) we have:

Equivalently:

Taking limits:

Here the result is not valid because the number of terms of depends on .
