1.

**drwls**, Tuesday, December 11, 2007 at 2:08am1. Apparently you mean the sum from n=1 to n=infinity of 1/(6n^2)

= 1/(6*1) + 1/(6*4) + 1/6*9)

= (1/6)(1 + 1/4 + 1/9 + 1/16 + ...)]

This is not a geometric series. The ratio of successive terms is not a constant.

2. 0.6 + 0.6^2 + 0.6^3 + ...

= 0.6(1 + 0.6 + 0.6^2 + ...]

= 0.6/[1 - 0.6)= 1.5

This is a geometric series.
