calculus - ratio test

Posted by COFFEE on Sunday, July 29, 2007 at 6:32pm.

infinity of the summation n=1: (e^n)/(n!) [using the ratio test]

my work so far:

= lim (n->infinity) | [(e^n+1)/((n+1)!)] / [(e^n)/(n!)] |

= lim (n->infinity) | [(e^n+1)/((n+1)!)] * [(n!)/(e^n)] |

= lim (n->infinity) | ((e^n)(e^1)(n!)) / ((n+1)(n!)(e^n)) |
..the e^n & n! cancels out

= lim (n->infinity) | (e^1) / (n+1) |

im stuck here.. how do i finish this?
and also to find out if it's Divergent (L>1), convergent (L<1), or fails (L=1)?

The limit is zero. So, L = 0 therefore the series is convergent.

The value of the summation is e^e - 1

-------------------

thank you for your response, but..

how did you get the summation of e^(e-1)
...from this?
= lim (n->infinity) | (e^1) / (n+1) |
