    one way is to find the limit as x -> infinity, so what's the limit of the function? you'll notice it goes to infinity too, so it diverges ^_^

    what if its is alternating (-1)^x * x^.5?

    when you get 1 value as your answer , then it's convergence, but if it goes to infinity and you have more than one value as an answer then it's also diverging ^_^
