Express the individual elements of each term in terms of i.

For the 3rd term, i=3, then

8/3!=2*³/3! = 2³/i!

Verify with another term:

for i=4,

2^i/i!=16/4! = 4th term, OK

Check the first term (which does not have the same form), i=1

2^1/1! = 2/1 = 2 OK

So the sum would be:

Σ2^i /i! for i=1 to ∞
