Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first term is a geometric series with first term 1/2 and ratio 1/2, the second term is a geometric series with first term 1 and ratio 1/5 use the formula \[S=\frac{ a_1 }{ 1r }\] to find the sum of an infinite geometric series

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then it is s =0.5/(10.5)=1 and 1/(11/5)=5/4 1+5/4 =9/4
