Using the index "n" of the partial sums of a series as the domain, and the value of the corresponding partial sums of the series "Sn" as the range, is a series a function?

Please include in your answer:
- Which of the basic functions, (i.e. - linear, quadratic, rational, exponential), is related to the arithmetic series?
- Which of the basic functions, (i.e. - linear, quadratic, rational, exponential), is related to the geometric series?

Give a couple of real life examples of both the Arithmetic and Geometric sequences and series. Also explain how these types of examples might affect you personally.
