Alternating Series

Applying the alternating series error bound to analyze how far a partial sum is from the value of the infinite series.

Mapped to AP College Board # LIM-7, LIM-7.B, LIM-7.B.1

Applying limits may allow us to determine the finite sum of infinitely many terms. Approximate the sum of a series. If an alternating series converges by the alternating series test, then the alternating series error bound can be used to bound how far a partial sum is from the value of the infinite series.
