## Problem 1

Does the following sequence converge or diverge?

If the sequence converges, also find the limit of the sequence.

$a_{n}={\frac {\ln n}{n}}$ ## Problem 2

Consider the infinite series  $\sum _{n=2}^{\infty }2{\bigg (}{\frac {1}{2^{n}}}-{\frac {1}{2^{n+1}}}{\bigg )}.$ (a) Find an expression for the  $n$ th partial sum  $s_{n}$ of the series.

(b) Compute  $\lim _{n\rightarrow \infty }s_{n}.$ ## Problem 3

Determine whether the following series converges absolutely,

conditionally or whether it diverges.

$\sum _{n=1}^{\infty }{\frac {(-1)^{n}}{n}}$ ## Problem 4

Determine the convergence or divergence of the following series.

$\sum _{n=1}^{\infty }{\frac {1}{n^{2}3^{n}}}$ (a)  $\sum _{n=0}^{\infty }{\sqrt {n}}x^{n}$ (b)  $\sum _{n=0}^{\infty }(-1)^{n}{\frac {(x-3)^{n}}{2n+1}}$
