## cherrilyn 5 years ago convergent or divergent?

1. cherrilyn

$\int\limits_{2}^{\infty}dx/(x+3)(x+1)^{?}$

2. dumbcow

what are the limits and is there an exponent on (x+1)

3. cherrilyn

the bounds are 2 - infinity. and yeah the exponent is 2.

4. anonymous

convergent

5. cherrilyn

how?

6. anonymous

you can integrate it, then you can find

7. dumbcow

after integrating using partial fractions and evaluating the limit to infinity i get infinity - infinity + 1/6 where infinity - infinity is indeterminate however it may still converge to 1/6 i dont know if thats much help weiwei what did you find that it converged to?
