Step 1

1 of 2Let $f(x)=\dfrac{1}{x(\ln{x})^3}$ then $f(x)$ is positive and continuous for $x\geq 2$. Consider

$\begin{aligned}f'(x)&=\dfrac{(\ln{x})^3-3(\ln{x})^2}{x^2(\ln{x})^6}\\&=\dfrac{-\ln{x}-3}{x^2(\ln{x})^4}\\&<0\quad \text{for }x\geq 2\end{aligned}$

which implies $f$ is decreasing for $x\geq 2$. So we can apply integral's test.
