Hello,

Take a look at this : Bertrand Series ;) - Apr 6th 2008, 10:56 AMMathstud28OK go through with the integral test
= and I think you can see where to go from there...just remmber that it must converge(the integral) for the series to converge..oh yeah and if then the antiderivative is +C

But you did it from 1 to infinity, and it is 2 to infinity.......

Do it when and apply the integral test.

Lemme check my answer, is it when p > 1?

I think thats right
