Previous: Convergence tests for positive
So in the rare cases that you can't use the alternating series test,
use any of the tests for positive series for
If the problem also asks about convergence and absolute convergence,
always consider the sequence
- alternating series test, and
- ``absolute convergence implies convergence''
Which of the following series converge? Which of them converge absolutely?
(The last one is a bit more tricky than the others.)
