You cannot find the sum. It will go to -infinity. As the terms are not bounded the series diverges.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I cannot even tell what is the next term...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

It's written there a "+"

OpenStudy (anonymous):

You are right, I thought it is -1 each term

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I have the solution, had a bath and cleared my mind :-) this is a geometric series with ratio \[\ 1/(sqrt{2} +1)\] s=\[\sqrt{2}+1\] So the infinite sum is = (sqrt{2}+1)*1/(1- 1/(sqrt2+1))
