If anyone wishes to tackle it, go ahead and integrate and see what a cool result you get. I thought it was anyway. It shouldn't be too bad. Some division and term by term integration.

OK, sorry, I didn't know. I didn't realize it was a Putnam problem. Rather cliche then.

Rather cliche then. yes. in fact, it was mentioned on this forum already, see page 2 here. it was used to prove that 22/7 exceeds pi but thanks for reminding me about that impressive result. i dont get to see it as often as TPH does
Read about it here. Here is a much more nastier one I found on AoPs:
I seen it in "Gamma, exploring Euler's constant" by Julian Havil. A nice book.
