Convergent and Divergent Infinite Series

  • With the use of limits, it is possible to determine the finite sum of infinitely many terms.

    • This section primarily focuses on determining whether a series converges or diverges.

      • Understanding partial sums in regards to terms of a series is paramount.

      • An infinite series of number converges to a real number, if and only if the limits of its sequence of partial sums exists and equals that same real number.
