Given:
An infinite series $$9+\frac{117}{4}+\frac{1521}{16}+\frac{19773}{64}+...$$
To determine:
Given series is convergent or divergent.
Calculation
Consider the given series:
$$9+\frac{117}{4}+\frac{1521}{16}+\frac{19773}{64}+...$$
Here, $$a_1=9$$
$$a_2=\frac{117}{4}$$
$$a_3=\frac{1521}{16}$$ and so on.
Now, $$\frac{a_2}{a_1}=\frac{\frac{117}{4}}{9}=\frac{13}{4}$$
Similarly, $$\frac{a_3}{a_2}=\frac{\frac{1521}{16}}{\frac{117}{4}}=\frac{13}{4}$$
Similarly, $$\frac{a_4}{a_3}=\frac{\frac{19773}{64}}{\frac{1521}{16}}=\frac{13}{4}$$
Here, $$\frac{a_2}{a_1}=\frac{a_3}{a_2}=\frac{a_4}{a_3}$$
Therefore, given series is geometric series with common ratio $$r=\frac{13}{4}$$
Here, $$r=\frac{13}{4}>1$$
We know, a geometric series with common ratio >1 is always divergent.
Therefore, the given series is divergent.

$$\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{2}{10^n}$$ Does the series (showing the picture) converge or diverge?
1) The integral test shows that the series converges
2) The nth-term test shows that the series converges
3) The series diverges because the series is a geometric series with |r|>=1
4) The nth-term test shows that the series diverges
$$\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{4^n}{n+1}$$ Does the attached series converge or diverge? Note: it is a complex series and not a real series. I've been told the limit comparison test is not a valid approach to solving this problem.
$$\sum_{n=1}^\infty\frac{1}{n-i^n}$$ A) Does this series converge? If yes, towards what number?
B) Find the first 5 terms of the sequence of partial sums in this series.
C) What is the general term of this sequence of partial sums?
$$\sum_{k=1}^\infty(\frac{2}{k}-\frac{2}{k+1})$$ It appears that the terms of the series

are less than the corresponding terms of the convergent series
$$1+\frac{1}{4}+\frac{1}{9}+\frac{1}{16}+...$$
If the statement above is correct, then the first series converges. Is this correct? Why or why not? Make a statement about how the divergence or convergence of a series is affected by the inclusion or exclusion of the first finite number of terms. $$\sum_{n=1}^\infty(\cos^{-1}(\frac{1}{n+1})-\cos^{-1}(\frac{1}{n+2}))$$ $$\sum_{n=0}^\infty\frac{3^{n-2}}{4^{n+1}}$$ $$\frac{9}{100}+\frac{9}{100^2}+\frac{9}{100^3}+...+\frac{9}{100^n}+...$$
