Using the comparison test to determine convergence or divergence

The comparison test for convergence lets us determine the convergence or divergence of the given series by comparing it to a similar, but simpler comparison series. We’re usually trying to find a comparison series that’s a geometric or p-series, since it’s very easy to determine the convergence of a geometric or p-series.

Geometric series test to figure out convergence

Before we can learn how to determine the convergence or divergence of a geometric series, we have to define a geometric series. Once you determine that you’re working with a geometric series, you can use the geometric series test to determine the convergence or divergence of the series.
