Problem 4E

For what values of p does $$\int_{1}^{\infty} x^{-p} d x$$ converge?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 6

Definition ;

The    partial sum of the series  is given by

=  +  ++..............+ . If the sequence of these partial sums {Sn} converges to L,

then the sum of the series converges to L. If {Sn} diverges, then the sum of the series diverges.

=     is  convergent  . Conversely  , a series is divergent if the sequence of partial sums is divergent. If    and   are convergent series , then   +  )   and  -   )    are convergent  . If  C ,  then  is convergent  series.

NOTE : The terms grow without bound ,  so the sequence does not converge.

Integral test ; The series can be compared  to an integral to establish  convergence or divergence.

Let f(n) =  be a positive monotone decreasing function . If

f(x) dx =   f(x) dx <  ,

then the series converges. But if the integral diverges, then the series does so as well.
