If you meant an expression for the closed form then it is obviously not possible. The sum will either equal a constant or infinity.

With a variable as the upper index yes. But with an infinity up there the sum is either a constant like 1 / 2 ( just picked as an example ) or ∞.

Hi rajinikanth0602;

By the ratio test:

Hi;

Did you see post #32?

i will challenge that i will give 7000 rupees for solving dis problem or any important information about that sequence or range of that sequence

In exchange for the rupees I would like your acknowledgement that the problem has been solved with the proof that is in post#32, or do you require more?

As for post #19. It may be correct, I do not know. Still it is a very nice piece of work by a good man.
