How can I rewrite 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in 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)
