Does 1/ln(x+1) converge or diverge? I've tried the nth term test, limit comparison test, and integral test. All I get is inconclusive. The other tests I have (geometric series, pseries, telescoping series, alternating series, and 
Calculus
Use the ratio test to find whether the series diverges or converges. 1/5^n (1 to infinity) I think the limit converges to 1/5, so the series converges.
