Have you tried looking at \(\displaystyle \lim_{n \to \infty} \dfrac{a_{n + 1}}{a_n}\)?Can anyone help with this problem. I've tried integral test but seems to be too complicated.

Easy,Can anyone help with this problem. I've tried integral test but seems to be too complicated.

$\displaystyle 0 \leq \sum{\frac{1}{5^{n-1} + 1}} < \sum{\frac{1}{5^{n-1}}} = \sum{ \left( \frac{1}{5} \right) ^{n-1} }$

Since your positive term series is less than a convergent geometric series, your series converges by comparison.
