11.4 Infinite Sequences & Series
Question #2 (Medium): Comparison Test
The key is to come up with a much simpler function that is obvious as to whether is it convergent or
divergent. Then comparing to this simpler function, reflect back on the original function and based on
that derive whether the original function also diverges or converges.
Determine if the series converges or diverges.

In order to set up a simpler function in comparison to the original series function, look at numerator and
see if constant terms can be eliminated, and if so, what effect it has to the function. Would the new
function without the constant factor
