Use the series for e and let
hi everyone, can anyone help me on what looks like a simple problem?
i dont need you guys to do the whole problem, only hint or tell me how to begin : )
im working with E(e^t*N) = (e^-lambda)*[(sum of n = 0:infinity)*((lambda*e^t)^n))/n!]
this is equal to exp(lambda(e^t - 1))
how do you equal this to exp(lambda(e^t - 1)) ? geometric progression?
i am trying geometric progression formula = a/1-r
but getting nowhere : (
thank you all. sorry i dont have word or latex atm so i couldnt type the whole formula in maths form
i follow you on this, almost what i dont understand is..
where does the 'n!' go in ((lambda*e^t)^n)/n!? and about about the 'n' in (lambda*e^t)^n ? does it vanish?
thank you : )
sorry it's hard to follow and messy because i cant write up formulas here
i thought you can use the forumla a/1-r for geometric progression having infinity
Nvm. i got it
thanks all of you who read this thread
