    Well, rewrite this as:
    [tex]\frac{1}{5*6}+\frac{1}{5*6*7}+\frac{1}{5*6*7*8}++++=\frac{4!}{6!}+\frac{4!}{7!}+\frac{4!}{8!}+++=4!*(\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{n!})-4!*(\sum_{n=0}^{5}\frac{1}{n!})[/tex]
    see if you can get somthing out of this.

    Hint:

    [tex]e^x = \sum _{n=0} ^{\infty} \frac{x^n}{n!}[/tex]
