Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the function that you're integrating goes to infinity ^_^ I guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay! Do you know how to tell if they converge or diverge?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the answer = a finite number, then it converges, but if your answer = infinity , then it diverges ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, it has infinity as one of the limits

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it doesnt "go to infinity" :\

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but this one also works, my professor said that, or maybe I was day dreaming again ._.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or it could result in division by zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically, if there is an interval that you are integrating within, ie there are numbers on the top and bottom of the intendant, or the s looking thing, then it is proper. If there are no numbers, and it goes tninfinity, it's improper. You tell if it converges or diverges by seeing if any values cause the function to be indeterminate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's what I meant elec, division by zero = infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{\infty}^{\infty } f(x) dx\] something like that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does that mean it's improper?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or \[\int\limits_{0}^{1} \frac{e^x}{x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's improper if there are no limits. The infinity is implied, so it's usually not written.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are two cases either the interval of integration is infinite or the function to be integrate becomes infinite at the given interval of integration

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeh now I get what you me, but I dont like when people say that you get infinity when you divide by zero. Its not 100% mathematically correct, get your definitions in order :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nothing is 100% , there's only 98% elec ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0100% = perfection perfection doesn't exist, but it's good to seek it ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait .. so how do you know if it's converging or diverging again? Converging ends in an actual number and diverging goes to infinity or divides by zero?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0finite number = converge, infinite number = diverge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It diverges if it has an asymptote.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0horizontal or vertical?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats how you find if it goes to zero or infinity

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By using the asymptote?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Either asymptote will cause a divergence. It doesn't matter if it is horizontal or vertical. And I'm going star! Lol gimme a medal and fan me, catch ya later! Lol
