To determine if the improper integral converges or diverges, we need to split it into two separate integrals and then evaluate each part individually.
The integral from negative infinity to infinity of the given function is equivalent to the sum of the integrals from negative infinity to 0 and from 0 to infinity.
For each of these integrals, we'll use the limit comparison test. We'll compare the given function to 1/x^2 as x approaches positive and negative infinity.
Let's evaluate each part:

Integral from negative infinity to 0: As x approaches negative infinity, the given function behaves like 3/(7x^2). So, we'll compare it to 1/x^2. Limit comparison: lim (x > ∞) (3/(7x^2 + 4)) / (1/x^2) Simplifying, we get: lim (x > ∞) (3x^2) / (7x^2 + 4) This limit equals 3/7, which is a finite nonzero value.

Integral from 0 to infinity: As x approaches infinity, the given function behaves like 3/(7x^2). So, we'll compare it to 1/x^2. Limit comparison: lim (x > ∞) (3/(7x^2 + 4)) / (1/x^2) Simplifying, we get: lim (x > ∞) (3x^2) / (7x^2 + 4) This limit also equals 3/7, a finite nonzero value.
Since both limits are finite nonzero values, the integral converges.

When evaluating a onesided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
