no.. not till infinity... it's upto only n.. like from 1 to 3 or 1 to 4 or say 1 to n... and the question is summation of 1/(n*(n+1)*(n+2)) .. this is nth term of the series...

i have got this result from someone...

S(n)= 1/4 - 1/(2*(n+2)*(n+1))...

it is correct even! can you tell me the steps taken so as to achieve this result ? please! thanks.
