# Determine if the p-series converges or diverges. sum n = 1 infty 1 n 22

## Question:

Determine if the p-series converges or diverges.

{eq}\sum \limits_{n = 1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{n^{22}} {/eq}

## p-Series:

A p-series is any series that follows the standard form:

{eq}\displaystyle \rm \sum_{n = 1}^\infty \frac{1}{n^p} {/eq}

The p-series is named for its exponent p, which determines its convergence. As long as p is greater than 1.
