Geometric Series

A $\textit{geometric series}$ is the sum of the terms of a geometric sequence.for example: $1, 2, 4, 8, \cdots , 2048$ is a finite geometric sequence. $1+2+4+8+ \cdots +2048$ is the corresponding finite geometric series. If we are adding the first $n$ terms of an infinite geometric sequence, we are then calculating a finite geometric […]
