An infinite sequence (an) is called convergent if limit n tends to infinity an exists and is finite.
If this limit is not finite the sequence is called Divergent.
A series convergence calculator is used to find out the sum of the sequence and for determining convergence and divergence among series.
The sequence 1, 1/2,1/3……..1/n is convergent since an = 1/n → 0 as n tends to 0 (Zero)
The sequence 1, 2, 3, 4……n is divergent since an = n → Infinity.
Find the limit of sequence whose nth term is (-1n/n)
an= nth term = (-1n/n) = +- 1/n →0 as n tends to ∞
Example 2. Calculate Lt an = ½+1+3/2+….+n/2.
Since in the problem its given Limit n→∞anwe are just putting the value of an from the problem.
We will take ½ common from the numerator and ¼ common from the denominator.
Now we get,
Lt ½ (1+2+3+…..+n)
n→∞ 1/4 (n2+4n+12)
We know that 1+2+3+…n is equal to n(n+1) hence we put this value in the numerator and take n2
common in the denominator so we get.
Lt ½*n (n+1)
n→∞ ___ 2_________
Now we take the common factors and cancel them.
Since limit n →∞ we get,
1*(1+0)____ = 1
Hence limit n→∞, anequals 1.
