Write your 3 favorite convergence tests for series in the space provided below. Your descrip
tioii should be of the form “Given.., if... then...”
Exairiple: Root Test
Given a series of the form
a,
/[[ &lt; 1, then the series converges absolutely.
if iim /JJ &gt; 1, then the series diverges.
if 1im
11 /‘fJ 1, then the test is inconclusive.
