6. Let k > 0 be a constant and consider the important sequence {kn}. Its behaviour as n ® ¥ will depend on the value of k.
(i) State the behaviour of the sequence as n ® ¥ when k = 1 and when k = 0.
(ii) Prove that if k > 1 then kn ® ¥ as n ® ¥
(hint: let k = 1 + t where t > 0 and use the fact that (1 + t)n > 1 + nt.
(iii) Prove that if 0 < k < 1 then kn ® 0 as n ® ¥ .7. Given a geometric series with first term a > 0 and common ration r > 0 prove that a finite sum to infinity exists if and only if r < 1 and show that in this case the sum to infinity is . (hint: use the results of Q6 above, and recall that the sum of the first n terms is ).Problem #6 (a) When , we have as ; when , we have as . (b) If , we can assume that for some , then we have as . Thus as . (c) If , then , where . From (b), we know that as , then . Therefore, as . Problem #7 The geometric series is , then the sum of the first terms isFrom the result in problem #6, if , then as . For and , converges if and only if . At this time, as . Therefore, the sum of all terms is .
