    \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \frac{ 1 }{2\times 3 \times 4} -\frac{ 1 }{4\times 5 \times 6}+\frac{ 1 }{6\times 7 \times 8}-\frac{ 1 }{8\times 9 \times 10}~+.... }\) and this pattern continues like this.

    \(\Large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^\infty ~\left[\frac{\left(½-(½)(-1)^n\right)}{(n+1)(n+2)(n+3)}~\right] }\) but there is one problem here

    I need to have: positive output, when n=1 negative output, when n=3 positive output, when n=5 negative out, when n=7 so on....

    I need alternation, but regular (-1)\(^n\) wouldn't suffice here....

    \[\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{ \left( -1 \right)^{n+1} }{ 2n \left( 2n+1 \right)\left( 2n+2 \right) }\]

    oh yeah! I thought of 2n in the beginning, but for some reason I thought it was wrong... clearly, 2*3*4 then 4*5*6 and on also, the alternation is there. THANKS !!!!

    So, I can say: \(\large \displaystyle \pi =3+\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{ 4\left( -1 \right)^{n+1} }{ 2n \left( 2n+1 \right)\left( 2n+2 \right) }\)
