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

n / 8^n

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

It converges to 8 / 49? Not sure how.

First test of divergence

lim n-> n / 8^n. infinity / infinity = 1. BUT bottom grows fast.

Using L`Hospital

lim n -> 1 / 3*8^n*ln(2) ---> goes to 0

Tried to use the ratio test

[ 1 / 3*8^(n+1)*ln(2) ] * [ 3*8^n*ln(2) ]

1/8 is left from the ratio test
