**calculus**

wait. aren't all the odd terms positive? since its (-1)^n-1? because if you sub n=3, it becomes (-1)^2, which is positive? And thank you once more. This was very helpful!
*July 31, 2011*

**calculus**

So, you're saying that when you separate an alternating series into two (odd and even) then the (-1)^n-1 goes away? And why did you make S1 negative, but not S2. And do i need to find the sum for S2 to answer the question? Because i only know how to find the sum of ...

**calculus**

im confused. I was taught that if it is an alternating series then you can only use the alternating series test to see if it was diverging or converging. And i did the alternating series test and all the conditions were met for each series seperately.

**calculus**

Show that the series(−1)^n−1(bn) where bn = 1/(n^1/2) if n is odd and bn = 1/2^n if n is even, diverges. Why does the alternating series test fail?
