**1. Homework Statement**

The problem asks me to express the sum of the series as a telescoping sum, then find whether it is convergent or divergent. Ok, I get that and how it works and all, but the examples they give in the book are stupid and i on spring break this week so no office hours for professors.

**2. Homework Equations**

Here it is:

2/(n^2 + 4n + 3)

I know, easy, but I don't get how to do it.....the easy ones stump me.

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I rewrote it like this:

(1/2)(2/n+3) - 2/n+1)

But the terms do not cancel when I do this. Plus it is an even question so I do not know the solution.
