We have to determine whether [itex]\sum 1/n^2 + 4[/itex]

is convergente or divergent

2. Relevant equations

I'm trying to work the problem through trigonometric substitution. I was wondering if I could just determine that by the P-series test, the function 1/n^2 will always be larger than the other one, since p is greater than 1 in this case, both are convergent.
