    Determine whether the given integral converges or diverges

    I am not sure how to type equations so they display correctly but I have attached an image file to show what I did with the equation. I am not sure if I did this correctly and would like any feedback, seems too easy.

    You have done everything correctly (though you seem to have forgotten about the extra factor of 1/2 in the last step). The integral diverges.

    Thanks, I eliminated the 1/2 too early. On paper I had already determined it diverge to infinity and half of inifinty is still infinity.
