You want to know $\lim_{n\to\infty} \frac{n+1}{n-2} \, \,$ ?

3. the infinity is by the numberator n+1 and n=1 is by the denominator n-2. i don't know what it means

I did not follow you.

Do you mean you have $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{n+1}{n-2}$ ?

5. yes

6. Good.
So what is the question?

7. determine the limit of the sequence

This is an infinite series, not a sequence.

Do you mean the limit of the nth term, which is $\frac{n+1}{n-2}$ ?
