1.Write 4+6+8+10 in sigma notation:
I came up with sigma in the middle
3 on top
j=0 on the bottom
2n+4 to the right of the signma sign

2. Find the 10th term of the sequence
-1/5,-1/20,-1/80 this was a geometric sequence so I said a(subscript10) = -1/5*1/4^(10-1)
=-1/5*(1/4)^9 = -1/5*1/2621444
= -1/1310702

Should be sigma sign not signma sign

1. either have n=0 under the sigma, or use (2j+4) as the summand.

2. good work, but
4^9 = 262144. you have an extra 4.

1/5 * 1/262144 = 1/1310720

that dyslexia will get you every time. I noticed it right off, because no multiple of 5 ends in 2 :-)

did you hear about the dyslexic devil worshiper? He sold his soul to Santa.

Thank you-I see where I made the mistake

Funny!! I like that!

Please help-I need to write 4+6+8+10 in sigma notation would it be sigma sign in middle (3) on top of sign, n=0 on bottom of signma notation and to the right it would be (4+2n) so it would look like-- (3) (sigma in middle) (4+2n) n=0
