Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so far, my progress has been this much : i started my series from (1/3) ... denom. of nth term is easily (3^n)*(n!) num. of nth term will be 1.3.5.7............ =(1.2.3.4.5...........)/(2.4.6.8........) =( (2n)! )/(2^n * n! ) thus nth term will be (2n)! / (n!)^2 * 6^n or C(2n,n) / 6^n we have to fine its summation from n = 1 to infinity.. but am clueless after this.. will this be even helpful ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that's central binomial coefficient ... google for something like it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i have googled over,,i got this solution,,but couldnt understand as to why we did that.. it said to compare the summation with (1+x)^n and solve ultimately,,and to my surprise, i got the ans.. if anyone can explain why ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3it's better to use the generating function directly http://mathworld.wolfram.com/images/equations/CentralBinomialCoefficient/NumberedEquation1.gif

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3probably it comes from what google said \[ (1+ax)^k = \sum_{i=0}^k\binom{k}{i}(ax)^i = \sum_{n=0}^\infty \binom{2n}{n}x^k\] since it's infinite k can't be natural number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3here is one \[ 1 + {1 \over 3} + {1 \cdot 3 \over 3\cdot 6} + {1\cdot3\cdot 5\over 3\cdot6\cdot9}+...\] \[ (1 + x)^n = 1 + nx + {n(n1) \over 1 \cdot2} x^2 + ....+\infty \] assuming n to be non natural \[ nx = {1 \over 3}\\ {n(n1)\over 1 \cdot2}x^2 = {1 \over 6} \\ \text{ this gives } x={2 \over 3} , n={1 \over 2}\]
