    Okay, this is an infinite solution since the top is your upper limit and the bottom is the lower limit

    so, -1/2^1-2 and so on - all the way to infinity - is going to be your answer

    1. -1/2^1-2 all the way to infinity (my answer for number 1?)

    Same thing for this equation. Replace the n with the lower limit (1) all the way to infinity. You don't have to show the work up to infinity, just lead up to it

    Okay Like I said. In both equations on the left side of the stigma, replace the n with: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.......... infinity And solve the equations :)
