Given:

sum{k=1 to k=oo} [((-1)^(k+1))/k]

Rearrange the terms so the series converges to 5 [lol, I haven't a clue how].

The reason you can use this theorem is that your series is conditionally convergent but not absolutely convergent.

BTW, here is your series using LaTeX code:

[tex]\sum_{k = 1}^\infty \frac{(-1)^{k + 1}}{k}[/tex]
