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

<<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> infinityposted by drwls

I'm studying infinite series and am really struggling with memorizing all the tests for convergence in my book, there's like 10 of them. I don't think I'm going to be successful in memorizing all of them. I will never be asked in

Use the comparison or limit comparison test to decide if the following series converge. Series from n=1 to infinity of (4sin n) / ((n^2)+1) and the series from n=1 to infinity of (4sin n) / ((2^n) +1). For each series which
