Find the range of $\displaystyle N\in \mathbb{N}$ such that $\displaystyle H_{N^2 }=1+1/2+1/3+\dotsc +1/N^{2} > (1+\frac{1}{N^2 })^{N}$.

Graph them and see where they cross.

Applying $\displaystyle H(2^{k} )\geq 1+k/2=2 \; \Rightarrow k=2$ and $\displaystyle N^2 =2^{k}=4\;$ or $\displaystyle N\geq 2$. Last edited by idontknow; November 6th, 2019 at 02:09 AM.

You don't need these questions answered for class or anything do you? If so I would ask that you put them in the "Math" forum with a label indicating that they are brain teasers for fun. This way helpers with limited time (and isn't that all of us?) can focus on helping students with their problems first. Thank you.
