trying to prove it converges but I do **not** know that series of 2/sqrt(n) converges? the power is less than 1.

I did try to manipulate it differently but that also is a bit dodgy (second pic)

EDIT: added the part in ** **

I think you are confusing it. The power 0<p=<1 means the sum of 1/n^p as n->infty diverges.

You know that and that diverges and so must diverge. So you have shown that your series is less than a divergent one, which whilst correct isn't really much help.

yh so it diverges but the question was asking to prove that it converges...
that's why I'm confused.

Probably a misprint. The sum on pics does not converge..

sorry I know that it diverges, that's why I am confused. its not meant to since the q was asking to prove that it converges

Are you sure it converges? Did the question ask to show it converges, or to use the comparison test to determine whether it converges or diverges? Because i'm fairly sure the series diverges.

its q2, probably is just a misprint then

EDIT: oh god I wrote the question out wrong.
