I don't think I understand the actual process of determining this solution. So far I have

f(x) >= g(x) >= 0

f(x) = dx/(x + e^2x)

Would someone be willing to explain the steps in solving this?

The problem I am working on is:

Use the comparison theorem to determine whether the integral is convergent of divergent. The integral is dx/(x + e^2x) from 1 to infinite.

My question is why does this not work.

For x >= 1, 1/(x+ e^2x) < 1/x, therefore 1/x+e^2x is divergent.

But the correct answer is

For x >= 1, 1/(x+e^2x) < 1/e^2x, therefore 1/x+e^2x is convergent.

Why doesnt mine work?
