The simplify_sum function can handle this sum:
(%i1) load(simplify_sum)$
(%i2) sum(1/(k*(k+1)),k,1,inf)$
(%i3) simplify_sum(%);
(%o3) 1

Hi all Maxima developers! I am one of the maxima users, although i've just used maxima for 3 months.
I want to ask why Maxima can't evaluate sum directly.
I wanr to evaluate the sum 1/(i*(i+1)) for i, from i = 1 to infinity, i have used sum(1/(k*(k+1)),k,1,inf), simpsum; but it didn't calculate the sum i wanted, but it just display the sum..
I want this problems to be solved..
Thank you very much,
an Indonesian Maxima User.
