Suppose that absolute value of (c) is less than 1 and that, for every positive integer n, (X sub n) = the summation from i=1 to n, of c^(i-1) Explain why, (X sub n) approaches (1/(1-c)) Thanks for your help!!

It's the sum of a geometric series: , so now you've to take the limit in both sides when , and....what's the limit of ? Exactly! Tonio
