5+(5/2)+(5/4)
Sn=189
Find n for the given sum if the geometric series

looks like
a = 5 and r = 1/2
so 5((1  (1/2)^n)/(1(1/2)) = 189
1  (1/2)^n = 56.7
(1/2)^n = 56.7
since we know that n must be a whole number and for the above to be true, n must be odd
so we could solve
(1/2)^n = 56.7
using logs,
n = log 56.7/log .5 = a negative
No answer to your question !!!
There is something bogus about your question.
(your last sentence appears incomplete)
