The formula for the sum of a geo series is:\[S _{n}=\frac{ a _{1} (1-r^n)}{ 1-r }\]

would it be -34,766?
PhantomCrow
  • PhantomCrow
That's not what I got. n=7 r=-4
PhantomCrow

So\[S _{n}=-6(1-(-4)^7/1-(-4)\]

is the fraction bar localized to 14^7/1, or does it encompass everything in parenthesis?

everything

Alright.\[S _{n}=\frac{ -6(1-(-4)^7) }{ 1-(-4)}\] This further simplifies to\[S_{n}=\frac{ -6(1-(-16834)) }{ 5 }\] Simplify again...\[S_{n}=\frac{ -6(1+16834) }{ 5 }\]\[S_{n}=\frac{ -98310 }{ 5 }\]\[S_{n}=-19662\]

Haha. As long as you know the series formulas, you should be good to go for any type of these problems.
