- 1. Inﬁnite Geometric Series iphone to inﬁnity for righty's by ﬂickr user KIT
- 2. Given a geometric sequence in which and , what is the value of ?
- 3. Series: The sum of numbers in a sequence to a particular term in a sequence. Example: denotes the sum of the ﬁrst 5 terms. denotes the sum of the ﬁrst n terms. Artithmetic Series: The sum of numbers in an arithmetic sequence given by is the sum to the nth term n is the quot;rankquot; of the nth term a is the ﬁrst term in the sequence d is the common difference
- 4. Sigma Notation: A shorthand way to write a series. Example: 4 ∑(2n - 3) means (2(1) -3) + (2(2) -3) + (2(3) -3) + (2(4) -3) n=1 = -1 + 1 + 3 + 5 =8 Σ is capital sigma (from the greek alphabet); means sum subscript n = 1 means quot;start with n = 1 and evaluate (2n - 3)quot; superscript 4 means keep evaluating (2n - 3) for successive integral values of n; stop when n = 4; then add all the terms (2n - 3) is the implicit deﬁnition of the sequence
- 5. Series: The sum of numbers in a sequence to a particular term in a sequence. Example: denotes the sum of the ﬁrst 5 terms. denotes the sum of the ﬁrst n terms. Geometric Series: The sum of numbers in an geometric sequence given by or is the sum to the nth term n is the quot;rankquot; of the nth term a is the ﬁrst term in the sequence d is the common difference
