theres a formula for this but first i need you to do something for me... find the common ratio r... ^.^

oh would that be (-1/2) right?

Yes exactly :D So the sum of an infinite geometric series assuming the absolute value of the common ratio is less than 1 would be given by this formula \[\Large S=\frac{a}{1-r}\] where a is the first term in the series and r is the common ratio ^.^

oh okay, so I would just have to sub in the common ratio and the first term using this formula and I would get the sum
