An = n^3 / (n + 5) Can I just take the limit and say this is equal to 1 / 0 so it diverges?

1 + 0 + 0 - 125/5 = -24 ?
What are you on about? You're subbing 1 here and 0 there. Take the limit as n goes to infinity

I think that's more along the lines of what I was supposed to be doing, anyway... So I'll just take the limit off the bat and say it diverges.

Got it. Thanks!
