Show that the sum of the series $\frac{1}{1!}+\frac{1+2}{2!}+\frac{1+2+3}{3!}+.....$ equal to $1+\frac{3e}{2}$.

I don't know how to find sum of this series, please tell me how to solve it?

HINT:

So the $n(\ge1)$th term is $$=\dfrac{1+2+\cdots+n}{n!}=\dfrac{n(n+1)}{2(n!)}$$

Now $n(n+1)=n(n-1)+2n$

So for $n\ge2,$ $$\dfrac{n(n+1)}{n!}=\dfrac1{(n-2)!}+\dfrac2{(n-1)!}$$

Now recall $e^x=\sum_{r=0}^\infty\dfrac{x^r}{r!}$
