â€¢ Please provide VERY CLEAR AND DETAILED SOLUTIONS.

â€¢ Please provide exact answers, not decimal approximations.

1) Consider the series where . Show that and for .

We have . Plugging the value n=1, we get the first term of the series i.e.,
We have and . The k th term is nothing but the difference between the sum up to k terms and the sum up to (k-1) terms.
So
.
Hence we can write for .
2) Use the result of the previous problem to find .
Here
We can write as . We know that sum of the series as from the previous result.
Hence =

3) The series converges. Find its ...
