How about combining the convergent series 2^(-n) and 3^(-n) in a clever way? Hint: alternate terms from each.

yeah thx, I used 2^(-n) when n is even and 2^-(n+1 ) when n is odd

Something like that will work, but doesn't that just give you limsup=1?yeah thx, I used 2^(-n) when n is even and 2^-(n+1 ) when n is odd
