# Thread: show series is convergent or not by using subseries

1. ## show series is convergent or not by using subseries

I have a question to show if the following series is convergent or not $\Sigma_{n \rightarrow 0}^{\inf} \frac{7^{n+1}}{8^n}$

and i have to show it with using different subseries most questions like this im ok with but with this im stumped would be very grateful for any help. Thanks.

What do you mean "by subseries"?? The series is clearly convergent: $\sum^\infty_{n=0}\frac{7^{n+1}}{8}=7\sum^\infty_{n =1}\left(\frac{7}{8}\right)^n$ , but what is "by subseries"...?

3. ## explain precisely

It will better to explain the problem you want to solve more precisely. Are you trying comparison test?
