Thank you Is it possible to find a geometric series summing to -1/3?
A geometric series converges if and only if . Apply my first reply.
So since r = 4, the answer is NO?

Can only rational numbers be sums of geometric series? Precisely which real numbers can be sums of geometric series?

The series sums to . Whether that is a rational number or an irrational number depends upon a and r. For example, given any rational number, u, take a= 1 and solve . Given any irrational number, v, take a= v/2 and a= 1/2.
