Homework Help: Series converge or diverge

  1. May 8, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    summation n from 1 to inf, 1/ln(n+5) converge or diverge

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1/ln(n+5) > 1/n (from n=2 to inf)

    and i proved that it diverges by comparison test, am i correct?
    i am thinking that as my prove is n from 2 to inf not from 1 to inf
    can i still use this prove?
