test for convergence/divergence help!
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
test if (1+4^n)/(1+3^n) is convergent or divergent.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
using the ratio test. i got it equal to 5/4 which is > 1, so it diverges. can someone check this? what other methods are available?

What you have given is a sequence, not a series and the ratio test applies to series convergence. Did you mean to test
for convergence? If so the ratio test is appropriate, but I don't get 5/4 for its limit.
