1. the sum of the area of all the circle converge to pi in^2

2. the sum of the areas of all the circles diverge from 2pi in^2

3. the sum of the areas of all the circles converge to 2pi in^2

4. the sum of the areas of all the circles diverge from pi in^2

my solution: i think it is number 4 because the radius ends up being zero.

**Steve**, Monday, January 9, 2012 at 5:18amsum is pi(1^2 + (1/2)^2 + (1/4)^2 + ...)

= pi (1 + 1/4 + 1/16 + ...)

= pi (1/(1 - 1/4)) = pi (1/(3/4)) = 4pi/3

I think the answer they wanted was 2pi (#3) but 2 = 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + 1/16 + ...

and we have 1 + 1/4 + 1/16 + 1/64 + ...

a + s = 920

s = 2a-16

a + 2a-16 = 920

3a = 936

a = 312

s = 308 = 2*312 - 16
