# How do you show whether the improper integral #int e^x/ (e^2x+3)dx# converges or diverges from 0 to infinity?

To determine whether the improper integral

[ \int_{0}^{\infty} \frac{e^x}{e^{2x} + 3} , dx ]

converges or diverges, you can use the limit comparison test.

Let ( f(x) = \frac{e^x}{e^{2x} + 3} ) and ( g(x) = \frac{1}{e^x} ).

First, show that ( f(x) ) and ( g(x) ) are positive, continuous, and decreasing functions for ( x \geq 0 ).

Next, compute the limit:

[ \lim_{x \to \infty} \frac{f(x)}{g(x)} = \lim_{x \to \infty} \frac{\frac{e^x}{e^{2x} + 3}}{\frac{1}{e^x}} ]

[ = \lim_{x \to \infty} \frac{e^{2x}}{e^{2x} + 3} ]

[ = \lim_{x \to \infty} \frac{1}{1 + \frac{3}{e^{2x}}} = 1 ]

Since the limit is a finite positive number, and ( \int_0^\infty g(x) , dx ) converges, by the limit comparison test, ( \int_0^\infty f(x) , dx ) also converges. Therefore, the given integral converges.

When evaluating a one-sided 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.
