How I know when the sequence of convergent sequence has a limit? [If you give me a link that explains it or write some words, I'll be happy.] Last edited by skipjack; February 23rd, 2018 at 10:14 AM.

But there are many different ways to determine the convergence of a sequence, so what you should do may vary with the specific series. Can you give an example of a series that you are concerned with?

Is the "convergence of a sequence" the basis of "convergence of series"? Last edited by skipjack; February 23rd, 2018 at 10:19 AM.
