Find all the real values of x for which $\sum _1^\infty x^n/n$ converges.

Find all the real values of $x$ for which $\sum_1^{\infty}(x^n/n)$ converges.

I began with the ratio test to get $nx/(n+1)$ but I'm not sure where to go next. I think I'm supposed to use Leibniz's Theorem at some point?

You should have $x^n$ in the denominator ? –  Amr Nov 25 '12 at 22:33
Yes, sorry that was a typo, I'll correct it. –  Mathlete Nov 25 '12 at 22:34
$$a_n:=\frac{x^n}{n}\Longrightarrow \left|\frac{a_{n+1}}{a_n}\right|=\left|\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}\frac{n}{x^n}\right|=|x|\frac{n}{n+1}\xrightarrow [n\to\infty]{}|x|$$
Thus, the series converges for $\,-1<x<1\,$ , and it's easy to see that it also converges for $\,x=-1\,$ (Leibnitz series)
Mathlete, when $n=1000000000000$, is $n/(n+1)$ close to zero? or is it close to $1$? –  Gerry Myerson Nov 25 '12 at 22:38
