Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's write down the function in a more decent form ^_^:\[=\sqrt{ak}/\sqrt[3]{k}\] now if we want to calculate the speed of both we'll write it down as follows: \[(ak)^1/2 > (k)^1/3\] we know that 1/2 is > 1/3 , so we notice that the upper part is larger and much faster. So, the series diverge, since the upper part is alot faster than the lower part, it goes to infinity. Answer: the following series dosn't necessarily converge. ^_^ Hope you understood what I wrote , and please correct me if I'm wrong :)
