    How Do I Use The Alternating Series Test To Prove...

    How would I use the Alternating Series Test to prove that sum from n=1 to infinity of ((-1)^n)/(ln(7n)) is conditionally convergent. Is there another test I have to use?

    You need to show that the sequence of positive-valued terms decreases to 0 as n approaches infinity.
