Exam 3 Instructions. No calculators, notes or books allowed. You must show your work in the blue
book and cross out any work you do not want graded. Remember to sign your blue book.
With your signature you are pledging that you have neither given nor received assistance
on this exam. Most of the problems have multiple parts and several of them can be done
without using the other parts. Good luck! Use the geometric series °° 1
