Unformatted text preview: a matrix A = [aij ]m×n and the j th column Cj of a matrix B = [bij ]n×r as n Ri · Cj = aik bkj k=1 9.2 Summation Notation 563 Again, the reader is encouraged to write out the sum and compare it to Definition 8.9. Our next example gives us practice with this new notation. Example 9.2.1. 1. Find the following sums. 4 (a) k=1 4 13 100k (b) n=0 5 n! 2 (c) n=1 (−1)n+1 (x − 1)n n 2. Write the following sums using summation notation. (a) 1 + 3 + 5 + . . . + 117 111 1 (b) 1 − + − + − . . . + 234 117 (c) 0.9 + 0.09 + 0.009 + . . . 0. 0 · · · 0 9 n − 1 zeros Solution. 1. (a) We substitute k = 1 into the formula 4 k=1 13 100k = 13 100k and add successive terms until we reach k = 4. 13 13 13 13 + + + 1001 1002 1003 1004 = 0.13 + 0.0013 + 0.000013 + 0.00000013 = 0.13131313 (b) Proceeding as in (a), we replace every occurrence of n with the values 0 through 4. We recall the factorials, n! as defined in number Example 9.1.1, number 6 and get: 4 n=0 n! 2 0! 1! 2! 3! 4! +++= 2 2 2 2 2 1 1 2·1 3·2·1 4·...
