# A divergent series …. or maybe not?

The number ranges over all possible powers with both the base and the exponent positive integers greater than , assuming each such value only once. Prove that:

Let us denote by the set of positive integers greater than that are not perfect powers ( i.e are not of the form , where is a positive integer and ).  Since the terms of the series are positive , we can freely permute them. Thus,
