Unit: Sequences and Series Module: Infinite Series [page 1 of 2] Introduction to Infinite Series www.thinkwell.com [email protected] Copyright 2001, Thinkwell Corp. All Rights Reserved. 1632 –rev 06/14/2001 Binary operations combine two values to yield a single result. You can add as many numbers as you want as long as you only have finitely many of them. Since addition is for finitely many numbers, you will encounter difficulties if you try to add infinitely many terms. An infinite series is the sum of an infinite collection of terms. If you take a careful look at addition, you will notice that addition is defined as the combination of two numbers. This is called a binary operation . The only reason you can add multiple numbers together is because of the associative property. You can add as many numbers together as you like and get the same result no matter which order you combine them as long as you have finitely many numbers.
