I'm testing the end points of 2 < x < 10.

The Series looks like this:

SUM[tex]\frac{(x-6)^n}{4^n\sqrt{n}}[/tex]

The first endpoint (10), I got diverges by the p-test (p <= 1). The second one, in my notes it says to take the lim, and if it's 0 then it converges by alt. series test. Why do I do two different tests?
