(1 pt) For the following alternating series, \displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^\infty a_n = 1 - \frac{1}{10} + \frac{1}{100} - \frac{1}{1000} + .

(1 pt) For the following alternating series,
displaystyle sum_{n=1}^infty a_n = 1 - frac{1}{10} + frac{1}{100} - frac{1}{1000} + ...
how many terms do you have to go for your approximation (your partial sum) to be within 0.01 from the convergent value of that series?
