Homework Statement



[tex]\text{Show that }\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \left( \frac{e}{n} \right) ^n \text{converges.}[/tex]

The Attempt at a Solution



I think we should use the root test.

[tex]\lim_{n \to \infty} \sqrt[n]{\left( \frac{e}{n} \right) ^n} = \lim_{n \to \infty} \frac{e}{n} = 0 < 1[/tex]

So the series is convergent.


Does it look alright?

Thanks in advance.
