Chapter 1 Areas, volumes and simple sums 1.1 Answer the following questions: (a) What is the value of the fifth term of the sum S = 20 k =1 (5 + 3 k ) /k ? (b) How many terms are there in total in the sum S = 17 k =7 e k ? (c) Write out the terms in 5 n =1 2 n - 1 . (d) Write out the terms in 4 n =0 2 n . (e) Write the series 1 + 3 + 3 2 + 3 3 in summation notation in two equivalent forms. Detailed Solution: (a) a 5 = (5 + 3 × 5) / 5 = 4. (b) First term has index k = 7, and last term k = 17. Thus there are 17 - 7 = 10 terms. (c) 2 0 + 2 1 + 2 2 + 2 3 + 2 4 (d) 2 0 + 2 1 + 2 2 + 2 3 + 2 4 v.2005.1 - January 3, 2006 1
