HELP HELP HELP!! How do you determine the closed form of a summation? I realize that for geometric series the sum is just a/(1-r). I can determine the closed form of a non-geometric series by writing out a few sums then finding the pattern, but is there an easier way? I need an answer ASAP. College placement in a couple of days!
