The problem says to find the limit of the sequence.

a_{n}= (-1)^{n }* (3n + e^{-n}/5n)

I'm not sure how to approach this problem. Do I use the ratio test?

I apologize for the formatting. I'm not sure how to make the fraction look nice

And the "ratio test" is a test for convergence of a

Actually there is a ratio test for sequences as well.

For a sequence , the ratio test states
