    Write the sum using summation notation, assuming the suggested pattern continues.1 - 3 + 9 - 27 + ...

    not necessarily if you look at the summation question I asked before this.

    Write the sum using summation notation, assuming the suggested pattern continues. -4 + 5 + 14 + 23 + ... + 131 and the answer was \[\sum_{n=0}^{15}9n-4\]

    It depends on if it is finite or infinite

    for example I could have written \[\sum_{n=1}^{15}9(n-1)-4\]
