    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Integral from 1 to infinity of 1 / xln(third root of x)

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I tried to find if it diverged and then got lost after that

    if it diverges then that's the final answer. But can you post your work? maybe you did a mistake. But I think it is supposed to diverge.

    If you don't know what to do, then you don't know it diverges, right? Try a substitution u=ln(x).

    Dick: I did u = ln(x) and du = 1/x

    so int from 1 to 0 ln(third root of u)du

    = - in from 0 to 1 ln(third root of u)du

    I always mix up these substitutions.

    Note: [tex]\log_a b^x = x \log_a b[/tex] where a, b and x are real numbers, (a,b) > 0.
