Homework Help: calculus

Posted by sarah on Friday, March 21, 2008 at 1:02am.

find the sum of the series:

1. the sum from n=1 to infinity of ((-1)^n*(.2)^n)/n

I simplified this to: (-.2)^n/n
I know this is alternating, but how do I know what the sum is?

2. the sum from n=0 to infinity of 1/2^n

Is this geometric with n^(-2)? and if so, do you use the formula?

3. the sum from n=1 to infinity of n/(2^(n-1))

THANK YOU SO MUCH
