# Thread: test for convergence or divergence

1. ## test for convergence or divergence

What test should i use for this function [(2n+1)^n]/n^2n. You dont have to solve it, just tell me which one is the easiest test for this function.

thanks

The root test? $\sqrt[n]{{\frac{{\left( {2n + 1} \right)^n }}
{{n^{2n} }}}} = \frac{{2n + 1}}{{n^2 }}$
.

nth root test

4. ahh thanks...makes sense

I'd use the nth root test: Root Test

6. btw the answer is converge right?

why?

8. limit goes to zero.
