    Geometric Series - Converge or Diverge - # 4

    Converge or Diverge? \displaystyle\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} e^{-2n} Would r = 1, and a = 1? What if it was \displaystyle\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} e^{-2n} ??

    Geometric Series - Converge or Diverge - # 3

    Converge or diverge? \displaystyle\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \dfrac{2}{10^{n}} What is r? It's confusing because n is in the denominator only. I'm thinking a might be \dfrac{1}{10}

    Geometric Series - Converge or Diverge - # 2

    Does this series converge or diverge? (Post edited) \displaystyle\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} (\dfrac{1}{\sqrt{2}})^{n} r = \dfrac{1}{\sqrt{2}}, but what is a? I'm thinking a = 1

    Geometric Series - nth Partial Sum

    Find a formula for the nth partial sum of the series. If it converges find the sum. 1 - \dfrac{1}{2} + \dfrac{1}{4} - \dfrac{1}{8} +....+(-1)^{n-1}\dfrac{1}{2^{n-1}} + ... The answer is s_{n} = \dfrac{1 - (-1/2)^{n} }{1-(-1/2) } and it converges to \dfrac{2}{3} We can tell from looking...

    Geometric distributions

    Howdy :) I am trying to solve but unsure of what I should be doing for part (ii). I have worked out p and the probability generating function of X for part (i). Is this information meant to help me for part (ii)? As I am unsure how I get to the point of deciding what the probability...

    Testing whether or not a series is geometric

    Above is the question as to whether or not E^infinity n=2 2^n/5^2n is geometric or not. I used the an+1/an formula to check and found out that it was indeed geometric, however my answer came out to 1/5 and not 2/25 as in the example. Where did the example even get the additional +2 on the...

    Euclidean Geometric Proof regarding Triangles

    Hello, This is related to altitudes, medians and bisectors in a triangle: I'm struggling to solve this proof - In triangle ABC where AB is not equal to AC, and AH, AD, AM are the altitude, bisector, and median, respectively, prove that point D will always fall between H and M. I've set...
