(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Finally done with stupid improper integrals (calc 2 over summer is hard work, moving super fast) and now i'm sequences and series and what have you. I have another comparison test problem

Instructions are to find out if sequence converges or diverges, and find limit if it converges.

Sequence is:

{A_{n}}= n!/(2^n) .

3. The attempt at a solution

I know what to do with the factorial most of the time. I tried expanding it but the 2^n is throwing me off becuase the sequence diverges. Can i get a nudge in the right direction? I don't think my instructor wants me to find the limit of it if i can avoid doing so on divergence problems (he makes a point to tell us on HW to check convergence beforehand as practice for quizzes/tests).

As always thank all of you who help out pity-able college students as myself (lol) .
