  1. an+1/an = e^-3 (1 + 2/n + 1/n^2)

    that ratio is less than 1, so the series converges.

  2. we can't use the ratio test on it. The only thing we know as of now is the integral test.

    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,
