Question #5 (Medium): Making the Alternating Series Convergent
To find the missing variable to make the alternating series convergent, keep the missing variable and
test against two conditions of the alternating series test, then work backward to find the suitable value
for that makes the series convergent.
For what value of is the series convergent?
( ) ( )
Given the alternating series,
In order for the alternating series to be convergent, it needs to pass two criteria of the alternating series
test conditions. For the first condi
