test the series for convergence or divergence

the series from n=0 to infinity of
(x^2+1)/(x^3+1)

I said that due to the limit comparison test this converges at 1

  1. <<the series from n=0 to infinity of
    (x^2+1)/(x^3+1)>>

    Where did the x come from? Shouldn't he variable be n?

    For large n, it approaches the sum of 1/n with n going to infinity, which does NOT converge. You can prove that with the "integral test". It behaves like log n as n-> infinity

    Test the series for convergence/divergence. The Summation from n=1 to infinity of: 1*3*5...(2n-1)/(2*5*8...(3n-1) I'm not sure what to do with the extra terms on the left.
