The following advanced exercise use a generalized ratio test to determine convergence of some series

The following advanced exercise use a generalized ratio test to determine convergence of some series that arise in particular applications, including the ratio and root test, are not powerful enough to determine their convergence. The test states that if $$ lim{n}a{2n}an<12 then anconverges,while if lim{n}a{2n+1}an>12, then an diverges.

Let an=11+x22+xnn+x1n=(n1)!(1+x)(2+x)(n+x).

Show that a2nanex/22 . For which x > 0 does the generalized ratio test imply convergence of n=1an?

No, he ratio test does NOT imply the convergence for n=1an.

For all these problems, carry at least four digits after the decimal in your calculations. Answers may vary slightly due to rounding. In order to use a normal distribution to compute confidence intervals for p, what conditions on pp and nq need to be satisfied?

You are given the sample mean and the population standard deviation. Use this information to construct 90% and 95% confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. From a random sample of 24 months from January 2006 through December 2016, the mean number of tornadoes per month in the United States was about 100. Assume the population standard deviation is 114.

The pathogen Phytophthora capsici causes bell pepper plants to wilt and die. A research project was designed to study the effect of soil water content and the spread of the disease in fields of bell peppers. It is thought that too much water helps spread the disease. The fields were divided into rows and quadrants. The soil water content (percent of water by volume of soil) was determined for each plot. An important first step in such a research project is to give a statistical description of the data.

Driven by technological advances and financial pressures, the number of surgeries performed in physicians' offices nationwide has been increasing over the years. The function f(t)=0.00447t3+0.09864t2+0.05192t+0.8(0t15) gives the number of surgeries (in millions) performed in physicians' offices in year t, with t=0 corresponding to the beginning of 1986.
