Can anybody help me determine wether or not these statements are true or false? I've tried multiple combinations and can't get it right. :/ 1. All infinite arithmetic series with d not equal to 0 diverge. 2. Suppose an is an arithmetic sequence with d0. Then the sum of the series a1+a2+a3+...+a12 must be positive. 3. An infinite sum is equal to the limit of the sequence of partial sums. 4. An infinite geometric series must converge if r<1.

4. is true for r < 1: answer is a/(1r), where a is the first term.
