  1. Jan 15, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    is the series convergent or divergent.
    Sum from 2 to ∞ of 1/ [n(ln n)^.5]

    2. Relevant equations

    comparison test?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Is it possible to use the comparison test for this problem. Also, could I compare this with something like: (1/[(ln n)^.5] that is very similiar, please help me choose what i need to compare it with.

    thankyou.

    The integral test seems appropriate for this one. Do you see why?
