Add the equations: . . hey soroban. i got that. thnx but what do you think might be wrong with my solution. i have four terms you have combined 2 of them as one & then solved. but doing it the other way should also give the same answer, right? what do you think might be wrong with it?
we have thus from here we've automatically found a telescoping sum, thus your sum equals
Hello, adhyeta! Find the sum: I'm getting the wrong answer, just cant find out where i'm going wrong. here's what i did... replaced the above by; . . . . . . . . At this point, I'd factor again . . . . . And this is equivalent to what I had found . . .
