1. ## Calculate the product

I really need help to get tips to solve this one because I find it extremly difficult.

Simplify each bracket. Write out the first few terms. Cancel common factors. What do you get?

1. Calculate the values of the brackets:

$\left(1-\frac12\right) \left(1-\frac13\right) \left(1-\frac14\right) \left(1-\frac15\right) ... \left(1-\frac1{50}\right) = \frac12 \cdot \frac23 \cdot \frac34 \cdot ... \cdot \frac{49}{50} =$

2. Cancel! You should come out with $\frac1{50}$

EDIT: ... too late - again!

4. Thanks, you are great.

Is that the most simpel way to solve it?
