Hello! I am struggling with approaching the following problem: $\displaystyle \lim_{n\to\infty} \sum_{k=1}^{n} \frac{n}{\sqrt{n^4 + k^2}}$ I know that I probably have to use something like the following: $\displaystyle \lim_{n\to\infty}\frac{ba}{n} \sum_{k=1}^{n}f(x_k) = \int_a^b f(x) dx$ ... but currently I'm in a block and can't seem to find my way around this problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Last edited by skipjack; August 16th, 2018 at 06:22 AM.

Are you sure that the $n^4$ in the denominator is correct?
