Power series from 1 to infinity of (n^n)*x^n? I applied the ratio test:

((n+1)^(n+1)x^(n+1))/((n^n)*x^n) = ((n+1)^(n+1)*x)/(n^n) and after taking the limit of n->infinity I got nx which goe s to infinity. I think I messed up, any help? (Rock)

Hello, thehollow89!

The algebra of the Ratio Test is very tricky . . .
