To determine if the series (1/(2n+1)) converges or diverges for n = 1 to infinity, we can use the integral test. We integrate the function f(x) = 1/(2x + 1) from 1 to infinity. If the integral converges, then the series converges; if the integral diverges, then the series also diverges.

∫[1 to ∞] (1/(2x + 1)) dx = [ln|2x + 1|/2] [1 to ∞]

= lim[as t approaches ∞] (ln|2t + 1|/2 - ln|3|/2)

= lim[as t approaches ∞] (ln|2t + 1|/2)

Since the natural logarithm function grows without bound as its argument goes to infinity, the limit of ln|2t + 1|/2 as t approaches infinity diverges.

Therefore, since the integral diverges, the series (1/(2n+1)) also diverges by the integral test.
