**Calculus - Series4**

so what's the best way to find that number? would it be putting n towards infinity or 0?

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

Okay I get it now!! Thanks a lot Steve :)

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

Ok so lower bound is the lowest achievable value, so upper bound will be the highest, right?

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

or rather it starts off at 2

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

Oh, 2 would be the upper bound? Because it can't go higher than 2?

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

Because I thought that if it decreases it'll eventually get lower than 1. What is the definition of lower and upper bound, I don't get that part.

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

so the upper bound is 1, since it converges, right?

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

but if I put n = 1 in both I get =2 for the first and =1.8 for n+1. Or is that not how I go about doing it?

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series4**

Determine if the following sequence: { (n + 1)^2 / (n^2 + 1) }, is ascending, descending and find the lower bound b OR the upper bound B. (n + 1)^2 / (n^2 + 1) > ((n+1) + 1)^2 / ((n+1)^2 + 1) so the sequence is descending, it's the bounds I don't know how to find.

**Calculus -Series3**

Ok I see, I was just adding the same fractions on every line instead of just adding the answer from the previous. Thanks Steve!

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus -Series3**

Find the sum of the following convergent series: (a) Ei=1 1 / (3i - 2)(3i + 1) I know that it equals: = 1/4 + 1/28 + 1/70 + 1/130 + 1/208 a= 1/4, but I can't figure out what r = 1/4 * 1/7 = 1/28, but from 1/28 to 1/70 and so on it doesn't work anymore.

*September 20, 2012*

**Calculus - Series2**

Found it, the answer is S=3

*September 19, 2012*

**Calculus - Series2**

Find the sum of each of the convergent series: b) 5 - 1/3 + 20/9 - 40/27 + 80/81 ..... so first we need to find the general term, and I'm not sure of my answer, but I got: ((-1)^2 * 2!)/3^n and a0 = 5 From here on I'm lost.

*September 19, 2012*

**Calculus - Series**

so I realized it's not using the derivative that we find if a sequenec is ascending/descending, but rather comparing the series. Nonetheless, the sequence is still descending.

*September 19, 2012*

**Calculus - Series**

Determine if the following sequence: { (n + 1)^2 / (n^2 + 1), is ascending, descending and find the lower bound b OR the upper bound B. So I found that the sequence is descending changing the n's for x's and using the derivative. But now I'm not sure on how to ...
