# Find the sum of the first ten terms

How do I find the sum below?

$$\sum_{i=1}^{10}\frac{2i+1}{i^2(i+1)^2}$$

I think there should be a simpler way instead of just adding the ten terms up using brute force, since it's impossible to do that in less than 10 minutes in a contest, because the terms starting on the 4th one is ugly, and even uglier to get the common denominator.

Can someone give me some idea for this?

Just notice that you have $(i+1)^2-i^2$ there. –  Martin Sleziak Sep 19 '13 at 13:35

Note that $$\frac{2i+1}{i^{2} (i+1)^{2}} = \frac{1}{i^{2}} - \frac{1}{(i+1)^{2}}.$$
