A regular hexagon is inscribed in a circle of radius 100. The area of that hexagon outside the square is shaded. Another circle is inscribed in the hexagon, and hexagon is inscribed in the second circle. The area of the second circle which lies outside the hexagon is shaded. This process continues to infinity.
What is the sum of all shaded areas?

Radius of 1 = 100
Radius of 2 = ______
Radius of 3 = _______
Radius of 4 = ________
Side of hexagon 1st =_________
Side of hexagon 2nd = ________
Side of hexagon 3rd = ________
Side of hexagon 4th = _______
Area of Circle 1 = ________
Area of Circle 2 = ________
Area of Crcle 3 =________
Area of Circle 4 = _______
Area of Hexagon 1 = _______
Area of Hexagon 2 =______
Area of Hexagon 3 = ______
Area of Hexagon 4 = _________
Difference of 1st =_________
Difference of 2nd =_________
Difference of 3rd =_________
Difference of 4th =________

Each new one is _________of the previous area.
Sum of all areas = ___________

Is there any relationship concerning the areas as the number of sides of the inscribed figure increases? If so what would you predict would be the area sum for 8 or 9 sides?_________

Suppose that, throughout the U.S. economy, individuals spend 90% of every additional dollar that they earn. Economists would say that an individual's marginal propensity to consume is 0.90. For example, if Jane earns an additional dollar, she will spend 0.9(1)=$0.90 of it. The individual that earns $0.90(from Jane) will spend

Is the seriessum from n=1 to infinity of (-1)^n convergent or divergent? Justify your answer. Can you now resolve the difficulty of the following:
Divergent series:
S=1+1/2+1/4+1/8+1/16+...
You have probably seen the following trick to sum this series: if we call the above sum S, then if we multiply by 2, we obtain: 2S=2

The sum of the infiniteseries, 1/2^2 - 2/3^2 + 3/4^2 - 4/5^2 + ... is given as pi^2/12 - log 2 on pages 64-65 in the book "Summation of Series" by L. B. W. Jolley, 2nd ed., 1961, Dover Pubs. Inc. (the ^ symbol denotes exponentiation in the above series and sum).
For most of the series in his book, he lists a source (referen

This problem is adapted from the famous Greek paradox "Achilles and the Tortoise": suppose a rabbit and a turtle are in a race. The rabbit is ten times as fast as the turtle, and the turtle is given a 100-foot head start. The paradox claims that the turtle will always be ahead of the rabbit si
