I was able to solve (e), this is the only one I don't get.

Determine whether the series is convergent or divergent and say what test you used to solve it.

(d) sum n=1 to infinity
(5n)^(3n) / (5^n + 3)^n

• Calculus -

Tn = (5n)^(3n) / (5^n + 3)^n
Tn+1 = (5(n+1))^(3(n+1)) / (5^(n+1) + 3)^(n)

Tn+1/Tn = (5(n+1))^(3(n+1)) / (5^(n+1) + 3)^(n+1) * (5^n + 3)^n / (5n)^(3n)

As n->oo, 5^n+3 is just 5^n, so we can simplify things a bit to

(5n)^(3n) * (5n)^3 * 5^(n^2)
----------------------------- =
(5n)^(3n) * 5^n * 5(n^2)

(5n)^3 / 5^n

Since exponentials grow faster than powers, the ratio is less than 1, so the series converges absolutely.

• Calculus -

what does Tn stand for?

• Calculus -

nth Term of sequence
I thought it would be clear from the context and the obvious use of the ratio test.

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, …
