Post a New Question

Posted by on .

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

  • calculus - ,

    1) Log[1 + x] =

    sum from n = 1 to infinity of
    (-1)^(n+1) x^n/n


    2) 1/[1+x] = sum from n=0 to infinity of x^n

    x = 1/2, there is no n^(-2) in here.


    3)

    Differentiate both sides of the equation:

    1/[1+x] = sum from n=0 to infinity of x^n

    with respect to x.
