Use the Ratio Test to determine whether the series is convergent or divergent. ∑ n = 1 ∞ n 100 100 n n !

To determine

Whether the series is convergent or divergent by using the ratio test.

Explanation

1) Concept:

Use the ratio test

2) The Ratio Test:

(i) If limnan+1an=L<1, then the series n=1an is absolutely convergent. (and therefore convergent).

(ii) If limnan+1an=L>1 or limnan+1an= then the series n=1an is divergent.

(iii) If limnan+1an=1, then the ratio test is inconclusive, that is, no conclusion can be drawn about the convergence or divergence of an.

3) Given:

n=1n100 100nn!

4) Calculation:

Consider. n=1an=n=1n100 100nn!

Here,an=n100 100nn! is positive and an+1=(n+1)100 100n+1n+1!
