Sequences and SumsI have much expanded my pages on Sequences, Series and Partial Sums. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20100210 09:35:52
Re: Sequences and SumsHi MathsisFun; instead of k = 1. It doesn't change the sum but maybe you could mention that you dropped off the 0^2. If you think it won't complicate the explanation. Good problem ( outer and inner bricks ) to illustrate the point. In Geometric Sequences and Sums: After this: " Why "Geometric" Sequence? Because it is like increasing the dimensions in geometry:" I was a little disappointed that you didn't continue drawing r^4, r^5 ... That was supposed to be funny! Good, neat work! It is a lot of stuff so I may have missed something obvious but it looks good to me. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100210 09:49:46
Re: Sequences and SumsSequences page is wonderful! igloo myrtilles fourmis #4 20100210 20:20:16
Re: Sequences and SumsThanks guys, I will fix those. And any othe "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20100211 02:37:09
Re: Sequences and SumsHi MathsisFun;
Do you remember when you were a kid and you would make an ugly face. Your mother may have said not to do that because your face was going to stay that way? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20100211 07:27:41

I should have listened "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20100211 07:43:22
Re: Sequences and SumsSequences finding a rule is flawless as long as you want A Rule to have a capital A in 1st sentence after title. igloo myrtilles fourmis #8 20100211 09:14:13
Re: Sequences and SumsGood point, I will fix the "a"s "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
