    I want to know if the integral

    [tex]\int_0^{\infty} dx/(4x^3 + x^(1/3)) [/tex]

    is convergent or divergent?


    Thanks

    What have you tried? Have you compared it with integrals whose convergece/divergence you know? Keep in mind your integrand is also undefined at 0.

    Use {} instead of () to group things in latex, click on [tex]\int_{0}^{\infty}[/tex]

    Well I'm just not sure what happens when

    [tex]\int_{0}^{1}dx/x^{1/3}[/tex]

    I think it converges, but I"m not too sure.
    because when that function is below [tex]1/x[/tex] on the graph

    What is the anti-derivative of [itex]\frac{1}{x^{\frac{1}{3}}}= x^{-\frac{1}{3}}[/itex]

    Is the function [itex]\frac{1}{4x^{3}+x^{1/3}} [/itex] ? If so, what is its limit to [itex] 0^{+} [/itex] ?
