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.

Okay, let's get started on first. Find the power. Serious reputation for ethics was long of one minus X. Okay, we're gonna start with very familiar terrace, parent of these function. So this is equals to Seema from a and zero two, if any extra help in. And ah, that's fuzzy relation between a state desist re x. So either any relation between African Jax. It is not hard for fun that the derivative of X equals two. One more witness X Times ninety one. So this equals to Ministry of X. Okay, so Well, this the pain expanding for Ministry of X, that is just ninety one times and from zero to infinity extra power in, and we're going in to grow it. This I don't think we're going anywhere right by from both sides and that this is going to be so here is in the grow, and we can change the other Symon and he grew. So there's going to be not one times signal from zero to infinity and except in class one or And this one Yes, on DH. This is just the so here. Well, there's the anywhere of minus jaxx. This isjust fx So we conclude that the tailor experience FX equals to ninety one times and from zeros for infinitely extra towers in past one and plus one. This is just no, you won hundreds except off in the war in and from one two even. Okay and next. So use party to fund the power Siri's of wrath of X equals X times. So Okay, so this part, let's say this is the two of us and this is one of X. So after two of its just equals two x times of one backs. So it's going to be ninety one homes and from one to infinity x two power and plus one or in and see, but putting at least one half your result from part, eh? Expressing onto as some of you in Siri's. Okay, so all this lawn, too, so long to ecos, too long of one minus minus one. Okay, actually wait needs food. Defined the readers of convergence for one of ax so worthy way Expanded Serious is from the bear familiar. Siri's one of the woman's acts and the rudest converters for this service is just the absolute value is less than one. So Yeah, we're just talking one minus ninety one this long to into every one of X. So this is just I've won the minus one, and they're looking to get for me. We can get so ah, we're plugging one here. So it's going to be because not few times. So if this is one and this minus one three powers in tell her one. So Okay, so basically, it's just a that you won class half of not You went to the park to its one and the miners when? Third class, one fourth. And so on. Um, minus plus, not you wanted power. And over in. So yet this is our result. And we can simply fight as one minus one half plus one third months. One fourth and plus, not you want to earth and plus one in minus one equals to invest one street in the sense of the the value of minus one to the power off That's over, over in. So yeah, this is our results. Okay?
