lim n approachs infinity. the intergral from 1 to N (x^-1) dx / the intergral from 1 to N (x^alpha)dx = 0 use the tergral from 1 to n= intergral from 1 to k + intergral form k to n

using the denition of the Riemann integral can you prove it for?

is there any more info which can be given for the question?
