This posting explains different methods of testing convergent or divergent series.

##### Solution Preview

1. Use the ratio to determine if the following sequences are monotonic increasing, decreasing or neither.

Solution:

We can't say whether the term is less than 1 or greater than 1.
Thus the given series neither increasing nor decreasing.

2. Use the derivative test to determine if the following sequences are monotonic increasing, decreasing or neither.
