Week 2 – Infinite Geometric Series
what I learned this week in math is how to calculate the sum of infinite geometric series.
taking a look at the equation it says the sum of infinity equals the first number of your geometric series divided into 1 minus your common ratio for the series which is the term multiplied by the common ratio to give you the next term
so for this infinite geometric series the sum of all the numbers will come so close to the number 24 that it will basically equal 24
if the common ratio in an infinite geometric series is a decimal that means the series is converging and you can actually find a sum but if it isn’t a decimal then it is diverging which means you cannot find the sum
