    Suppose you have the series 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 + ... The first sequence is simply the LIST of terms: 1, 1/2, 1/4, etc. The second sequence is the list of partial sums. These are sums of the first n terms: sum 1: 1 sum 2: 1 + 1/2 = 3/2 sum 3: 1 + 1/2 + 1/4 = 7/4 etc. You should be able to take it from here.
