# Thread: Infinite Series and Limits

1. I didn't see this addressed anywhere: has anyone checked that this limit even exists? I tried evaluating it numerically, and it seems to grow without bound.

2. Hi I think because the limit does not exist, we need to use improper integral for it too. So its loosely speaking a combo of riemann sum and improper integral.

$\displaystyle \displaystyle \lim_{k \to \infty}\sum_{n=1}^k \frac{n^2}{n^2+k^2}$
I think there might be a typo in the question. LOL could be be the original numerator is n instead of n^2? that makes it solveable and the problem of an extra k will be solved too.

That's my opinion, too: there's a mistake, or perhaps more, in the question as given. Either in the given expression or in the indexes, or both.

Perhaps, though, there isn't a mistake...who knows.
