# Sum $\sum_{n=1}^\infty \log\left(\frac{(n+1)^2}{n(n+2)}\right)$ [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

How do I find de sum of this serie using the partial sums?

$$\sum_{n=1}^\infty \log\left[\frac{(n+1)^2}{n(n+2)}\right]$$

Thanks!

For $k$ fixed:
$\begin{eqnarray} \sum_{n=1}^k\log\left(\frac{(n+1)^2}{n(n+2)}\right)&=&\sum_{n=1}^k2\log(n+1)-\log(n)-\log(n+2)\\ &=&\left(\sum_{n=1}^k\log(n+1)-\log(n)\right)+\left(\sum_{n=1}^k\log(n+1)-\log(n+2)\right)\\ &=&(\log(k+1)-\log(1))-(\log(k+2)-\log(2))\\ &=&\log\left(\frac{2(k+1)}{k+2}\right)\\ &\to&\log2 \end{eqnarray}$
