State the Order comparison test in words.

Convergence of the dominant forces convergence of the subdominant. Divergence of the subdominant forces divergence of the dominant.

State the nth term test in words

if a series converges, then the limit of the series as n approaches infinity is 0.

No

If the limit of a series as n approaches infinity is 0, does that mean the series converges?

Name all the tests we know for divergence.

What condition(s) are necessary for the integral test?

No

If the integral test shows convergence, do the series and the integral converge to the same number?

What is required of a function to be considered a harmonic series relative?

must take the form 1/n where n is linear and has a positive slope

No

Can an alternating series be considered a harmonic series relative?

No
