Hello once again,
I have this problem that wants me to estimate the sum of a given series within 0.0001.
"Consider the series . Estimate the sum of the series within 0.0001."
I can't find any examples in my textbook that seem to explain how I would go about this. Can anyone explain how to approach this problem? I would greatly appreciate any help.
Sorry for the late response, I had to hit the hay.
Thanks to everyone for the help. I'm not sure I actually understand Moo's or Soroban's examples, but CaptainBlack's makes the most sense to me. If I understand correctly, the goal is to determine the sufficient nth term of the series that would be less than or equal to within 0.0001 of the "actual" sum. Is this notion correct? I applied it to a similar problem with correct results.
