: improper integral of 1/x^2 from 0 to 1
: Doesn't exist, correct???
unfortunately, there is a (dare I say) person that enjoys using my screenname to answer questions incorrectly. I probably upset them once by telling them they were wrong when they were wrong. That, or they are just too unimaginative to come up with their own name.
In any case, what you need to do is determine if the function converges or diverges on the given interval.
you can also approach this by rewriting the integral using limits. check your textbook for examples.
