(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The nth term for a sequence is the square root of [n/ (n^4 + 1)]

Investigate whether it is convergence or divergence.

2. Relevant equations

Ratio test and integral test

3. The attempt at a solution

Ratio test will fail for this question, since no conclusion can be drawn if the ratio is 1. So I have to use integral test. I tried integrating the function using integration by part, bu that doesn't work. Trigonometric substitution fail as well. Any idea how to integrate the function?
