: How do I show that this equation is convergent or divergent, and what equation do I compared it to?
: lim from 0 to 1
: integral of dx/square root(x^3+x)
Julie, TG is absoluately correct!
Not only have you called it an "equation", but you've misread the problem.
It's an INTEGRAl, not a sequence or series; there's no "comparison test".
Read it again: they asking you INTEGRATE that expression,
then evaluate it, using the limits 0 and 1.
Does the answer "converge" to a finite value, or does it "diverge" to Infinity?
