    Find the sum of the infinite geometric series, if possible. Show steps, if possible. \sum_{{j}={1}}^{\infty}4 \cdot 0.5^{j-1}

    \[\frac{1-r^k}{1-r}\] if r < 1, then the limit as k to infinity is \[\frac{1}{1-r}\]

    let me rechk my thought tho ... S = r + r^2 + r^3 + ... + r^n -rS = - r^2 - r^3 - ... - r^n - r^(n+1) ----------------------------------- (1-r)S = r + 0 ..........................- r^(n+1) S= r - r^(n+1) ----------- 1 - r

    if r < 1 then that exponented part goes to 0 leaving us: S = r/(1-r) for the sum
