find the sum of the series of (-2)^n/3^n+1.

This is an alternating series...
what if we rewrite it as

an= (1/3)* (-2/3)^(n)


Divide any nth term by the n-1 term and see if you get a ratio term r. This might be a geometric series.

    How can I prove this series alternating series converges(this is the answer)? (-1)^2*(2/3)^n I tried it this way: an = (2/3)^n, then i just broke it down. 2^n/(3^n) and i took the ratio of it and got 2/3 which does not equal to

    Does 1/ln(x+1) converge or diverge? I've tried the nth term test, limit comparison test, and integral test. All I get is inconclusive. The other tests I have (geometric series, p-series, telescoping series, alternating series, and

    If you have a geometric alternating series, and you prove that the series is converging by doing geometric series test, and NOT alternating series test, then does that allow you to say that the series converges ABSOLUTELY? Or

    test the series for convergence or divergence using the alternating series test the sum from n=1 to infinity of (-1)^n/(3n+1) I said it converges, is this true?
