Use the ratio test to determine whether each series is convergent or divergent.
4/(1*2*3) + 8/(1*2*3*4) + 16(1*2*3*4*5) + ...
How exactly do I do this? The example problem says to first find the nth term, but I don't know how.
Help is much appreciated.

looking at the pattern,
t(n) = 2^(n+1) / (n+2)!
that should get you started.

is this correct? use the integral test to determine if this series is convergent or divergent: the series from n=2 to infinity of 1/(n*square root of (ln(n))) I said it was divergent because the integral went to infinity

I need to find if the summation of (n^4)/(n^10 + 1) is convergent or divergent from n=1 to infinity. I tried splitting it up into two sums, one being 1/n^6, which would be convergent because p=6>1, and then the other being n^4, …
