Thread: is it divergent via nth term test?

1. is it divergent via nth term test?

inf ... (x)
sum -------
x =1 (x + 1)

I said that lim of this is not = 0 so thus it is divergent via nth term.

Could you also state that because the form is in that of a p series?
that is...

... (x)
--------
(x^1 + 1) where p = 1 means divergent.

Also what about the integral test?

Can you say that because of the integral test this is divergent?

Either you use wisely parentheses to write your mathematical expressions or else learn quickly to use LaTeX in the corresponding section of MHF. As you can see, it's practically impossible to understand what you meant.

3. Yes, sorry about that. it looked on before I pressed post then after seeing it now all the text gets shifted?....
My bad. i'll have to figure out how to use that latex program you mentioned. Thanks for your assistance.
