Homework Help: How do i find the lim of this series

  1. Apr 8, 2009 #1
    i am given

    n->∞ [nqn], q is not given

    the answer is apparently 0, but i cannot see how to get to that,

    surely this is dependant on the value of q?? if |q|<1 --> q=0
    but if q>1--> q=∞

    where am i misunderstanding this?? does q stand for something here??

    You are correct, so perhaps it was part of a bigger problem where |q| < 1 is already implied?
