Module 23  Answers 
Lesson 1 
Answer 1 
23.1.1
As n gets large the terms in the sequence get closer to zero. 
Answer 2 
23.1.2
The last several values appear to level off on the xaxis suggesting that . This is graphical evidence the sequence converges to zero. 
Answer 3 
23.1.3
The sequence appears to converge to approximately 2.7.

Lesson 2 
Answer 1 
23.2.1 s_{10} 10.4478 
Answer 2 
23.2.2 The fact that the sequence of partial sums appears to level off suggests that the sequence of partial sums converges, which means the infinite series converges. Trying larger values for nMax may add more evidence for this conclusion, but it is impossible to be certain that an infinite series converges based on a graph or a table. 
Answer 3 
23.2.3
The graph and table of partial sums indicate that the series converges to approximately 10.5. 
Answer 4 
21.2.4 In the previous table the 26th and 51st partial sums were both approximately 10.5. So a reasonable estimate for the sum of the infinite series is 10.5. 
Lesson 3 
Answer 1 
23.3.1
This is the Fibonacci sequence.
