Well actually we dont know!. This might surprise you a bit but the actual fact is that from centuries mathematicians have debated over this . It was scientist Srinivasa Ramanujan who had proved the fact that sum of all postive numbers is actually very small and by small I mean just -1/12.

If you dont believe me then take a look at the above snapshot taken from Wikipedia.
