Suppose the series An (from n=1 to INF) is known to be convergent. Prove that series 1/(An) (from n=1 to INF) is a divergent series.
I have no idea what to do... please help!

If the series is convergent then you know that An tends to zero, therefore 1/An tends to infinity and thus the second series cannot converge

I need to find if the summation of (n^4)/(n^10 + 1) is convergent or divergent from n=1 to infinity. I tried splitting it up into two sums, one being 1/n^6, which would be convergent because p=6>1, and then the other being n^4, …
