Help please!
Write the series in sigma notation.
1/4+1/2+3/4+1+5/4+3/2

rewrite as
1/4 + 2/4 + 3/4 + 5/4 + 6/4
so the general form of the terms are n/4
∑ n/4 , where n=1 to 4
write the "n=1" below the ∑ sign, and 4 above it 
Hello Reiny,
Thanks for the help however it's a multiple choice and ther is non like that.
I have:
A. 1/4 to the left of the e symbol. 5 on top n=1 on the bottom and n to the right.
b. 1/4 to the left, 6 on top, n to the right and n=1 on the bottom.
c. 5 on the top, n=1 on the bottom and to the right n/n+3
d. 6 on the top. n=1 on the bottom and to the right n/n+3. 
I obviously can't count to 5, only saw 4 terms, ha ha
you should have seen that
how about
∑ n/4 , where n=1 to 5
= (1/4) ∑ n , where n=1 to 5
