# How do you use the direct Comparison test on the infinite series #sum_(n=1)^ooarctan(n)/(n^1.2)# ?

Since

we have

Since #sum_{n=1}^infty {pi/2}/n^{1.2}=pi/2 sum_{n=1}^infty 1/n^{1.2}#

I hope that this was helpful.

To use the Direct Comparison Test on the infinite series (\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{\arctan(n)}{n^{1.2}}), consider the series (\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^{1.2}}). Note that (\frac{\arctan(n)}{n^{1.2}}) is always less than or equal to (\frac{1}{n^{1.2}}) since (\arctan(n)) is less than or equal to (\pi/2) for all (n).

Since (\frac{\arctan(n)}{n^{1.2}} \leq \frac{1}{n^{1.2}}) and (\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^{1.2}}) is a convergent p-series with (p > 1), by the Direct Comparison Test, the series (\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{\arctan(n)}{n^{1.2}}) converges.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- Using the integral test, how do you show whether #sum 3/(n sqrt(ln(n)))# diverges or converges from n=1 to infinity?
- How do you determine whether the sequence #a_n=n/(ln(n)^2# converges, if so how do you find the limit?
- How do you determine if the series the converges conditionally, absolutely or diverges given #sum_(n=1)^oo (-1)^(n+1)arctan(n)#?
- How do you determine if the improper integral converges or diverges #e^(-2t) dt # from negative infinity to -1?
- How do you find #lim (3x^2+x+2)/(x-4)# as #x->0# using l'Hospital's Rule or otherwise?
