Determine whether the series is convergent or divergent

Chapter 6 - Power function y=bx^m gives a straight line when plotted on a log-log axis - Exponential function y=be^(mx) also y=b(10)^(mx) gives a straight line when plotted on a semilog plot where the y axis is logarithmic. - Exponential functions never pass through the origin - Power function can pass through origin only if M>0 - P=polyfit(x,y,n) returns n+1 terms - Least square criterion: minimizes the sum of the squares of the residuals (sort of like a line of best fit) - Polyfit is based on the least square method
