for the geometric series shown, state whether the series in convergent. If the Series is convergent give its sum
9+6.3 +4.41 +...
a tutor helped me earlier but how is the sum 0.7

9+6.3 +4.41 +...
= 9(1 + .7 + .49 + ..
= 9(1 + .7 + .7^2 + ...)
the bracket is a geometric series with a first term of 1 and a common ration of .7
S_{∞} = a/(1r)
= 1/(1.7)
= 1/.3
= 10/3
so the total sum is 9(10/3) = 30

so wats 2+2

The sum is is not 0.7. That is the ratio of successive terms.
I thought I answered the question earlier. The sum converges to 30

Another problem: determine whether the series is convergent if so find sum it is the sum from k=1 to infinity of ((1)^k)/(3^(k+1)) i found this series to be geometric where a=1/9 and r=1/3 my answer was converges to 1/6

determine if the series is absolutely convergent and convergent. the sum from n=0 to infinity of ((1)^n*e^n)/(n!) I used the ratio test and said that it was absolutely convergent and convergent. is this true?
