this sequence has no definite pattern, can't say what will be the answer indeterminate

it contains 1/0. (alot of 1/0s.)

Does this help? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonic_series_(mathematics)
LollyLau
  • LollyLau
Not really. I know about the harmonic series, and doesn't really help much. The sum contains alot of 1/0s, so I've been wondering what the sum should be.
phi
  • phi
After the ninth term, the harmonic series has numbers less than 1/9 Your series will have a term >= 1/9 If harmonic diverges, and your series has terms > harmonic's then yours must diverge
LollyLau
  • LollyLau
Divergence means its indeterminate?
phi
  • phi
Eventually you will get a 1/0 in your series From wikipedia: The expression 1/0 is not commonly regarded as an indeterminate form because there is not an infinite range of values that f/g could approach. i.e. the series diverges to + infinity
