Having a lot of issue with proving this series: Given ∑ 1/n^2 converges to pi^2/6 Show that ∑ 1/ (2n-1)^2 converges to pi^2/8 Both equations have limits n=1 to infinity Any help would be greatly appreciated

You can evaluate this by using the sum of reciprocals of squares, and subtracting the sum of reciprocals of squares of the even integers.
Thanks , this makes perfect sense!
