Find the sum of series.

Now I think the beginning of your sequence should be

2*2^0 + 2*2^1 + 2*2^2 + ...

In that case, the sum is 2*(2^101-1)/(2-1)

**Reiny**, Friday, December 28, 2012 at 10:46amOn the other hand, there could be only one typo and the series is

1(2^1) + 2(2^2) + 3(2^3 + ... + 100(2^100)

In that case you have a hypergeometric series ...

What was I thinking?
