can someone please explain to me step by step what I am supposed to do? I'm very confused at the moment. thanks for any help. Evaluate the integral: the integral from 1 to infinity of dx/(x^1.001)

Evaluate the integral: the integral from 1 to infinity of dx/(x^1.001) You are asked for: which by the standard rules for the integral of a power other than -1: RonL

Evaluate the integral: the integral from 1 to infinity of dx/(x^1.001) $ is integral $ x^-1.001 dx = x^-0.001/0.001 should apply limit = (1^-0.001/0.001) - (1/infinite) = 1/0.001 - 0 = 1000 1000 is right answer.
