(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Use a valid convergence test to see if the sum converges.

Ʃ(n^(2))/(n^(2)+1)

2. Relevant equations

Well, according to p-series, I'd assume this sum diverges, but I don't know which test to use.

3. The attempt at a solution

I probably can't do this, but I was think about comparing it to (n^(2))/(n^(2)), which diverges, thus, the original sum diverges. This is one of those problems where it seems so easy, but it's hard. Please help.
