Sum of 1 to Infinity Gives an Astounding Result

Mathematics has continue to amaze everyone who loved it and continue to torture anyone who hates it. The following video will stun you because it sounds ridiculous and not reasonable enough by just using our common sense.

This video will demonstrate the following  relation.

\displaystyle\sum_{i=1}^\infty n=-\displaystyle\frac{1}{12}

This is equivalent to    1+2+3+\ldots+\infty =-\displaystyle\frac{1}{12}

Numberphile, a popular Youtube channel for people who loves to gain knowledge like you explained why the sum of numbers from one to infinity is a negative fractions.

If we just have to think about it, there must be flaws somewhere. Why? Imagine that these numbers were all positive, added and end up with a negative number and a fraction. This clearly violates the closure law of addition.
