Test the following series for convergence or divergence. Justify the decision.

The series converges. To show this we apply the integral test (Theorem 10.11 on page 397 of Apostol), letting

As in the previous exercise we evaluate the integral using integration by parts with

Therefore,

But, from the previous exercise we know

converges; hence,

convergges.

f(n) is not a decreasing function if you start from n=1. You need to start from n=3
