Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and actually i get the correct answer even the method i told you in the start without formula. all of them should work since the formula came from it to begin with

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay well this is what I plug into the formula\[S _{n}=\frac{ 4(1(6)^{6}) }{ (1(6)) }\] am I wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well for the top you didn;t have to worry a lot of that negative since you have an even power but bottom no
