# Numbers are very amusing I must say

Hey brillianters We all know that from induction we can prove that the sum of numbers from 1 ton is n( n-1)/n but I want to know that if we could prove or disprove that the sum of number from 1 to infinity is 1/0(1/0-1)1/0

Can you prove that it diverges

- 1 year, 2 months ago

$$1 + 2 + \cdots + n = \frac 12 n(n+1)$$ is only true for a finite $$n$$.

$$1 + 2 + 3+\cdots$$ diverges.
