    Convergent series

    I'm having a mind blank, can someone show that this series is convergent.

    ((k+2)^2)/k! summed from k=1 to infinity

    Cheers

    Putting a_k=\frac{(k+2)^2}{k!} , we get that \lim_{k \rightarrow \infty}\frac{a_{k+1}}{a_k}=0 , so the quotient test solves the problem.
