Comparison Test-Series

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I was just wondering that when applying a comparison test or a limit comparison test, do i have to show that a comparison test does not work in order to use a LCT? Also, if i directly use LCT, will i get the same answer as in the regular comparison test?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You do not have to first show that a comparison test will not work. If both tests are applicable then your result should be the same.

    Convergence is independent of the test you use.
