Geometric series - Check my answer
What is the first term in a geometric series with ten terms, a common ratio of 0.5 and a sum of 511.5? I got 256 as my answer. 511.5=a1[1-(.5)^10]/1-1/2 511.5=a1(1023/1024)/1/2 511.5=a1(1023/512) ----> divide by both sides 256=a1

I'm having trouble with a geometric series problem. Determine if the infinite summation of (-3)^(n-1)/4^n converges or diverges. If it converges, find the sum. So the answer says that sigma -3^(n-1)/4^n = 1/4 * sigma (-3/4)^(n-1) How did they factor out the 1/4? My algebra is ...
