Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if there was a pattern we could find from the partial sums, that could be useful; but its still a shot in the dark

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[e=\frac1{0!}+\frac1{1!}+\frac1{2!}+\frac1{3!}+\frac1{4!}+\frac1{5!}+...\] \[k^2e=k^2\left(\frac1{0!}+\frac1{1!}+\frac1{2!}+\frac1{3!}+\frac1{4!}+\frac1{5!}+...\right)\] pfft, theres prolly something wrong with my idea on that one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\large \frac{ k^2 }{ k! }=\frac{k(k1+1)}{k!}=\frac{k(k1)}{k!}+\frac{k}{k!}=\frac{1}{(k2)!}+\frac{1}{(k1)!}\]
