Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0whatever be the answer, u can proceed this way and get the answer: notice that all the terms are in the form: \[1/5(n1)n(n+1) \] form so, u can write it this way: \[[(1/n1)(1/n+1)]/10n\] take the 1/10 common so, if a term is 1/r(r1)  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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But Arnab09, 1/5(n−1)n(n+1) does not quite tally with the terms for the equation. (n1) for the first term is zero, and any number multiplied by zero remains zero...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0given 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)*(1/41/2(n+1)(n+2))....put here n=19 and Sn=209/4200..ans
