Lesson Worksheet: Root Test Mathematics
In this worksheet, we will practice determining if a series is convergent or divergent using the root test.
A series satisfies
What can we conclude about the convergence of the series?
- AWe cannot conclude anything.
- BThe series diverges.
- CThe series converges absolutely.
- DThe series converges conditionally.
Consider the series .
Is this an alternating series?
Is this series absolutely convergent, conditionally convergent, or divergent?
- AAbsolutely convergent
- BConditionally convergent
Consider the series , where the term .
What is ?
What is ?
Use l’Hopital’s rule to determine the value of the limit , where is a constant.
What does the previous result tell you about the values of and , where is an integer?
- AIt tells us nothing.
- BIt tells us that for all values of .
- CIt tells us that for all large values of .
- DIt tells us that for all large values of .
- EIt tells us that and are both zero if is large enough.
Using the comparison test, is this series convergent or divergent?
