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

    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} ?

    This is an infinite series, not a sequence.

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