10-131.

Determine if each of the following series converges or diverges. State the tests you used.

1. $\displaystyle \sum _ { n = 1 } ^ { \infty } \frac { 1 } { 2 ^ { n } - 1 }$

How does this series compare to the following series?

$\displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{2^n}= \sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\Big(\frac{1}{2}\Big)^n$

1. $\displaystyle\sum _ { n = 1 } ^ { \infty } \frac { n ( n + 1 ) } { ( n + 2 ) ( n + 3 ) }$

This series diverges. Why?

1. $\displaystyle\sum _ { n = 1 } ^ { \infty } \frac { 2 ^ { n } + n } { n ! + 2 }$

$\lim \limits_{n\to\infty}\frac{2^{n+1}+n+1}{(n+1)!+2}\cdot\frac{n!+2}{2^n+n}$
