How can I know what a summation of series will eventually converge to? For example, in this series: \[\sum _{ i=1 }^{ n }{ { 2 }^{ i-1 } } \] What are the steps I should take to know that it will eventually converge into what equation?
Hint: This is a geometric series
another hint, 2>1, so convergence is unlikely
Thanks for the hints. By the way, it does converge. It converges to \[2^n-1\]
But of course, if the series goes to infinity, then it wouldn't converge.
How can a finite series don't converge?
