Does this make sense ? $\displaystyle n=\sum_{k=1}^{n} \frac{k}{k}$ . It is same as 1+1+1+... , ntimes but the expression inside the sum is 1 .

I don't see anything wrong with that other than it should be mentioned that $k \neq 0$

Possibly $n \geqslant 1$ and $n \in \mathbb{N}$ were also intended.
