Hello everybody!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm having some trouble with series. My calculus teacher asked us to find the partial sum of

Sigma from 1 to n [n^-(1 + 1/n)]

It is obvious that the series diverges when trying to find the infinite sum. However, is it possible to find an expression dependant of n of the partial sum? I don't know where to start from
