1 + .865 + .865^2 +.865^3 ......

this is a geometric series with the first term one and every successive term multiplied by r =.865 (approx)

If r <1

then the geometric series converges.

for the series

a + a r + a r^2 + a r^3 ----- a r^oo

the sum is

S = a/(1-r)

here a = 1

and r = .865

S = 1/(1-.865) = 7.4
