1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1.

∑(infinity, k=1) 5k^(-3/2)

2.

∑(infinity, k=1) 1/(k+3)

2. Relevant equations

converge or diverge

3. The attempt at a solution

1. converges p=3/2... 5/(infin)=> 0

2. diverges p=1

I still don't get why 2 diverges? 1 converges b/c it gets to 0??
