This is my assignment for analysis. When I tried looking more into this theorem, nothing online seems to state this test in a similar way. I don't really understand what the proof is telling me, so I am having a hard time proving it to be true.
Let g:[a, ∞ ) ->R be a nonnegative function satisfying g is Riemann integrable on [a,c] for every c>a and the integral from a to ∞ g(x) dx <∞ . If f: [a, ∞ ) statisfies
a) f is Riemann integrable for every c>a and
b) |f(x)|<= g(x) for all x in [a, ∞ )
then the improper integral of f on [a, ∞ ) converges and |integral from a to ∞ f(x)|<= the integral from a to ∞ g(x)
Any help explaining this theorem or starting this proof would be much appreciated.
We haven't yet, that might why explain why I have no idea how to start. It's due soon though, so any help would be appreciated. I understand how that follows from the triangle inequality.
