### Summation of harmonic sequence

Problem:

Here c is a positive constant, find is this sequence convergent or divergent and if it is convergent, what it converges to?

I see that the series is convegent.

And I also see that it converges to some value which is bigger than 1/c, but less than 2/c.
But what exactly is the value? How to reach it?

Hi;

If you are summing it, it is a series not a sequence. That type do not converge.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.
I am willing to wager that over 75% of the new words that appeared were nothing more than spelling errors that caught on.
