I've been trying to solve this improper integral ∫[∞][1] ln(x) x^-1 dx. I couldn't find any way to use the comparison test to find divergence, so I used substitution and got ∞-∞ which I was pretty sure was divergence until I noticed I put 0 instead of 1 making my answer ∞. Do I need to prove divergence with a comparison test or is an answer of ∞ enough to prove it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
