$$\sum\limits_{n = 2}^\infty {\frac{1}{{\mathop n\nolimits^{1.3} }}}$$ is conversion

## With the help of making a graph from equation, ## Proof :

The given series is represented by the sum of the area of rectangles.

We can conclude from the figure that the area under the curve is less than the area of the rectangle. the curve is

﻿$$y = \frac{1}{{\mathop x\nolimits^{13} }}$$ for $$x \ge 1$$, Which is the value of $$\int_1^\infty {\frac{1}{{\mathop x\nolimits^{1.3} }}} dx$$

﻿Therefore, $$\sum\limits_{n = 2}^\infty {\frac{1}{{\mathop n\nolimits^{1.3} }}} < \int_1^\infty {\frac{1}{{\mathop x\nolimits^{1.3} }}} dx$$

﻿

Now that the integral $$\int_1^\infty {\frac{1}{{\mathop x\nolimits^{1.3} }}} dx$$ converges, so by the integral test, $$\int_1^\infty {\frac{1}{{\mathop x\nolimits^{1.3} }}} dx$$ also converges ### Want to see more solutions like these?
