4. Suppose ∞
n=1 an diverges and
n=1 bn diverges. Does
n=1 (an + bn ) necessarily diverge? If so, prove it. If not, provide a counterexample and explain.

5. A patient is prescribed a drug and is told to take one 50-mg pill every six hours. After
six hours, about 7% of the drug remains in the body.
(a) What quantity of the drug remains in the body after the patient takes four pills?
(b) What quantity remains after n pills are taken?

(c) What happens in the long run? That is, how much of the drug remains in the body
as n → ∞?
