determine whether the series converges of diverges

the sum from n=1 to infinity of

1/(the square root of (n^3+1))

I said that through the comparision test (comparing to 1/the square root of (n^3) the series converges
is this true?

  1. That is a valid way to do it. Yes, every term is smaller than 1/n^3

    The problem with these two questions is that I cannot determine the a and r. The 3rd question-I don't know what I did wrong. Thanks for the help! Tell whether the series converges or diverges. If it converges, give its sum.
