1. Determine whether the improper integral converges or diverges.
Lower limit: 20
Upper limit: 22
First i let u = x-2, so du=dx. and i calculated what u would be as a result of the substitution: when x=22, u=20, and when x=20, u =18. I'm not sure whether I have to split and do the integral separated into two terms.
as you have it written, this is not an improper integral.

recheck the problem.
Yes it is.
It should be 1/(abs(x-21))^(1/3)
I.e. Cube root
