How can I re-write the sum's suing Sigma Notation for: 2 - 2^2 + 2^3 -2^4 +2^5 I know the reoccuring number is going to be 2 which goes to the right of the sigma. on the bottom of sigma it would be 1, and top of sigma would be 5 right?

\[\sum_{n=0}^{4}2(-2)^n\] is one way of writing it.

oh. so that (-2), is that how it would go from negative to positive?

in what i put down, the index n goes from 0 to 4... so it's 2(-2)^0 + 2(-2)^1 + 2(-2)^2 + 2(-2)^3 + 2(-2)^4 which is 2(1) + 2(-2) + 2(4) + 2(-8) + 2(16)
