In mathematics, a series is, informally speaking, the sum of the terms of an infinite sequence. The sum of a finite sequence of real numbers is called a finite series. The sum of an infinite sequence of real numbers may or may not have a well-defined sum, and may or may not be equal to the limit of the sequence, if it exists. The study of the sums of infinite sequences is a major area in mathematics known as analysis.

In mathematics, a sequence is an enumerated collection of objects in which repetitions are allowed. Like a set, it contains members (also called elements, or terms). The number of elements (possibly infinite) is called the length of the sequence. Unlike a set, order matters, and exactly the same elements can appear multiple times at different positions in the sequence. Formally, a sequence can be defined as a function whose domain is either the set of the natural numbers (for infinite sequences) or the set of the first "n" natural numbers (for a finite sequence). A sequence can be thought of as a list of elements with a particular order. Sequences are useful in a number of mathematical disciplines for studying functions, spaces, and other mathematical structures using the convergence properties of sequences. In particular, sequences are the basis for series, which are important in differential equations and analysis. Sequences are also of interest in their own right and can be studied as patterns or puzzles, such as in the study of prime numbers.

(a) Show that the function…

the problem is showed that is a function they find it by blacks. Is they got e tunic to one on back square. Artifacts is not equal to zero. And the payroll. If axe instinct of zero is not in culture, it's Michael our Siri's. For a first, let's look at curative Lux two. You need to negative one over X toya hams. Two over. Ax killed. If Max is not, he can shoot zero and we can see that limit X from my axe goes to zero as he can't you, Cyril. So half half ex prom is they go to interconnected one of our square hams to overtax Killed. If axe is not zero and at one axe is he going to zero? It's degenerative and see much zero. Similarly, for second, which is called you to connective won over explainer times two over X Cube square plus two times connective three over access to the problem off. Or if X is not zero, my act is equal to zero we can find the limit of this function is equal to zero. What act goes to zero. So you win light. Why is equal to one over axe we can find that and preventive is ours too, He Conectiv. Why square hands some function about wine? Yeah, why is a phenomenal about what? And we have so here. This is accident, knotty or zero, and we have the limit. Why cause too fine Aunty eat connective y square Cam's some phenomenal, but why it's always equal to zero. It's over half were expensive. Zero and conservative is a go to cereal over half, So Michael are in Siri's off the function for wax. By definition, this is Echo two, some from zero to infinity. It's up and relative serial over Factorial axe to end, which is equal to zero things. The answer Votive at zero is always zero zero is a McLaren Siri's of the function apple backs so half are in axe is always equal to I need to connect one over X koi. If X is not equal to zero, this's a bearer bond for any end. So the limit. I'm Max. My aim goes to fine aunty. It is because to eat connected one over x squared if X is not equal to zero, So this is not equal to zero for any non zero number. So the function. It's not a country. It's my Clarence Siri's. Yeah, a part of B. Graf, the function part, eh? And the comment on its behavior nears raging. So that's the look. I was a graph of the function four blocks, so we can Samir a region value of function. It is almost zero. It's one of our small.
