  • First expand the series for each value of n #n/(2n+1)#=#1/(2(1)+1#+#2/(2(2)+1#+#3/(2(3)+1#+#4/(2(4)+1#+#5/(2(5)+1#

    Next, perform the operations in the denominator...

    #1/(3)#+#2/5#+#3/7#+#4/9#+#5/11#

    Now, to add fractions we need a common denominator... in this case it's #3465#

    Next, we have to multiply each numerator and denominator by the missing components...

    #1/3# gets multiplied by #1155# giving #1155/3465#

    (Divide the #3465# by #3# to get #1155# and divide the rest by the given denominator.)

    #2/5*693/693=1386/3465, 3/7*495/495=1485/3465, 4/9*385/385=1540/3465 and 5/11*315/315=1575/3465#

    Now simply add the numerators together... #(1155+1386+1485+1540+1575)/3465#

    giving #7141/3465#.

  • #1/2+1/4+1/8+cdots=1/2^1+1/2^2+1/2^3+cdots=sum_{n=1}^infty1/2^n#
