13.5 – Sums of Infinite Series

Objectives: You should be able to

Slide2

Formulas

The goal in this section is to find the sum of an infinite geometric series. However, this objective is very closely connected to the limit of an infinite sequence. Compare the sum of infinite geometric series to that of a finite series. Infinite Finite

Slide3

How did we get there?

Consider the following sequence of partial sums:  using the finite geom. formula  simplified

Slide4

Continued..

Now consider the limit of . Since the sequence of partial sums has a limit of 1, we say that the infinite series has a sum of 1 as well.

Slide5

Limits

If the infinite sequence of partial sums ( ) has: A finite limit, then it converges to the sum of S An infinite (approaches infinity or no limit) it is said to diverge.

Slide6

Also noted:

If , the infinite geometric series converges to the sumIf and , then the series diverges.

Slide7

Example:

Find the first three terms of an infinite geometric sequence with sum 16 and common ratio .

Slide8

Example:

Show that the series is geometric and converges to if , where n is an integer.

Slide9

Example:

The infinite, repeating decimal 0.4545454545….. can be written as the infinite series 0.45 + 0.0045 + 0.000045 + ….What is the sum of this series?

Slide10

Example:

What is the sum of the series for 5.363636… ?

Slide11

INTERVAL OF CONVERGENCE

Ex. Find the a) interval of convergence, b) the sum
