Can anyone let me know Is my assumption of the following series is convergent is true ? $\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^{\infty} \frac{n^2 + 1}{n^3 + n}$ Many thanks in advance

$\dfrac{n^2+1}{n^3+n} = \dfrac{n^2+1}{n(n^2+1)}=\dfrac{1}{n}$ $\displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^\infty \dfrac{1}{n}$ is the harmonic series which diverges.

Can you help me in understanding its properties like what could be the value of $\infty / \infty$, $\infty * \infty$ or $\infty+ n$ ($n$ is some natural number). Please clarify its values to determine the limit. Thanks in advance!
