Assignment Answers: Find the partial sum of the following: 1. = 250/2 (999 + 750) = 218,625 2. = 101/2 (1/2 – 73/4) = - 896.375 Find the indicated n th partial sum of the following arithmetic sequence: 3. -6, -2, 2, 6, … n = 10 = 10/2 (–6 + 30) = 120 4. 40, 29, 18, 7, … n = 12 = 12/2 (40 – 81) = – 246

INFINITE GEOMETRIC SERIES 6

Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 7 Definition of Geometric Series The sum of the terms of an infinite geometric sequence is called a geometric series. a 1 + a 1 r + a 1 r 2 + a 1 r 3 +... + a 1 r n-1 +... If |r| < 1, then the infinite geometric series has the sum

Convergence vs Divergence Convergence – a series with a sum, -1 < r < 1 Divergence – a series without a sum, the sum approaches positive or negative infinity, r 1 Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 8

Do the following series converge or diverge? 1.a 1 = 8, r = 5 2.64 + 16 + 4 + 1 + … 3. 9 1.diverge, since r > 1 2.Converge, since r < 1 3.Converge, since r < 1
