Well basically if it goes till $$\infty$$, then the answer will be $$\infty$$.

2. ParthKohli

Although, we can take out the sum of a finite sequence.

3. QuantumTorch

You're only adding to infinity, but you're adding by more each time It's an exponential curve sloping upward to infinity.

How to solve it

5. FoolForMath

This won't converge.

6. QuantumTorch

You don't have to actually solve it. If you want, you can draw a graph that looks like this: and recognize that it will never reach anything. It just keeps going up into infinity. |dw:1337501612526:dw|

There are infinite terms so the answer will obviously be ........ $\infty$
