I need to calculate the sum of the first n terms of ln(a)^n÷n! where 0≤n≥10. What values of a can I use?

EDIT: sorry i meant 0≤n≤10

Are you sure there is a stipulation on the value of $\displaystyle n?$ If this is in fact an infinite series then we have:

$\displaystyle \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{\ln(a)^n}{n!} = e^{ln(a)} = a$ where $\displaystyle a>0.$ - Mar 14th 2010, 05:55 PMShadow2793
ok, thank you all (Happy)
