Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, the answer is not \[\Large \sum_{n=1}^{8}4+4n\] for part 1 Part 2 depends on part 1, so that is also incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you're not summing to 8 up at the top (of the sigma), you're summing to 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it should be \[\Large \sum_{n = 1}^{6}4+4n\] for part 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first part is, but the second is not...and you'd have to use 6 instead of 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're basically summing 3(4)^(i1) from i = 1 to i = 5 So add up 3(4)^(i1) five times like so 3(4)^(i1) 3(4)^(i1) 3(4)^(i1) 3(4)^(i1) 3(4)^(i1) Then replace the first i with 1, the second i with 2, the third with 3, etc etc like this 3(4)^(11) 3(4)^(21) 3(4)^(31) 3(4)^(41) 3(4)^(51) Now evaluate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same thing, but you're now doing it with 1+5n

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0write out 1+5n five times 1+5n 1+5n 1+5n 1+5n 1+5n then replace the first n with 1, the second with 2, etc etc to get 1+5(1) 1+5(2) 1+5(3) 1+5(4) 1+5(5)
