Homework Help: Math (Series)

Posted by Sean on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 3:54pm.

Convert this series to closed form:

Sn = ln(1 - 1/4) + ln(1 - 1/9) + ln(1 - 1/16) + ... + ln(1 - 1/(n + 1)^2)

-----------------------------
I would guess the first step is this:

e^Sn = (1 - 1/4) * (1 - 1/9) * (1 - 1/16) * ... * (1 - 1/(n + 1)^2)

But how to I conver that to closed form?
