1. Using the nth term test Diverges right? because (How do I do the arrows in latex?)

Yes of course it diverges, if the sequence does not go to zero, it diverges. I think you can do an arrow with \rightarrow

Use n\to\infty to get The limit comparison test also shows it diverges.

You would have : edit: Is that the series you meant to give in your first post...now your use of the root test makes more sense.

This diverges because . That formula works only for .

Then whats the deal with this formula... a/1r? I thought i had to use that for convergence and divergence, but i can just go off of the r?
