    Alternative examples, alternating series test

    Hey guys, this one is just for funnsies. So when dealing with an alternating series test, 3 requirements must be met, : Alternating u(sub n) ≥ u(sub n+1) for all n ≥ N, for some integer N u(sub n) → 0 as n → ∞. So I have been coming up with examples where of these are true, and one isnt. A...
