If a and b are positive integers such that ab = 125, then (a-b)^(a+b-4) is equal to ?

I don't know what that means haha im super confused

Rule of the sum:\[24*\sum_{0}^{\infty} 1/2^n\] Nifty trick for geometric series with initial number a and ratio r:\[24*\sum_{0}^{\infty} 1/2^n = a/(1-r) = 24/(1-1/2) = 48\]

well you got the right answer. i just don't understand it

The trick is: \[a*\sum_{0}^{\infty}(r)^n = a/(1-r)\] As long as -1 < r < 1

i used S = t1 / 1-r

but i got 12

That's the same thing :D

then how did I get 12? hahaha

You multiplied by 1/2 instead of divided 24/(1/2) = 48, not 12
