u know the answer? is it 209/4200 ??

whatever be the answer, u can proceed this way and get the answer: notice that all the terms are in the form: \[1/5(n-1)n(n+1) \] form so, u can write it this way: \[[(1/n-1)-(1/n+1)]/10n\] take the 1/10 common so, if a term is 1/r(r-1) - 1/r(r+1), the next term is 1/r(r+1) - 1/(r+1)(r+2) when adding these two, note that the term 1/r(r+1) gets cancelled so, proceeding this way, we can get 1/1*2 - 1/20*21 = 209/420 multiply with 1/10, u will get 209/4200

But Arnab09, 1/5(n−1)n(n+1) does not quite tally with the terms for the equation. (n-1) for the first term is zero, and any number multiplied by zero remains zero...

no, here the terms start with n=2

given series is:: Sn=(summation form n=1 to n=19)(1/5)((1/2r)-(1/r)+1/2(r+1))...expand this equation and you will get : Sn=(1/5)*(1/4-1/2(n+1)(n+2))....put here n=19 and Sn=209/4200..ans
