## Example Questions

### Example Question #1 : Finding Sums Of Infinite Series

Find the value for

Explanation:

To best understand, let's write out the series. So

We can see this is an infinite geometric series with each successive term being multiplied by .

A definition you may wish to remember is

where  stands for the common ratio between the numbers, which in this case is  or . So we get
