I apologize right now for the fact that I have no idea how to use LaTeX(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can't figure out if the following alternating series is convergent or not:

Sum(((-1)^(n-1)) * ((2n+1)/(n+2))) from 1 to infinity

the root test is not applicable, A(n+1)>An, and the ratio test gives me Limit=1, so I have no comclusive evidence either way. Even Maple 10 couldnt give me an answer.

I have a test tomorrow. HELP!!!!!!!
