Help with Sigma NotationI'm new to sigma notation and I'm supposed to put 3 + 6+ 12+ 24 + 48 in it, but I really can't figure out how to do it. I've tried for so long, but nothing I try works. Can come help? #2 20051215 16:57:30

Re: Help with Sigma NotationI know all that, it's just this problem I can't get. #4 20051215 17:10:07
Re: Help with Sigma NotationDon't ask me how I got this, I couldn't tell you. Just a bunch of guessing and checking: Last edited by Ricky (20051215 17:11:14) "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20051215 17:17:15

Re: Help with Sigma NotationIt is "LaTeX" and I don't know it very well. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
