# How do you use summation notation to expression the sum #15-3+3/5-...-3/625#?

Please see the explanation.

Let try to fill in the finite sum:

If your remove a common factor of 15, you get:

Because the minus sign appears on the odd powers, one can see that we are raising -5 to a negative power:

To obtain the original sum, multiply by 15:

To express the sum using summation notation, you can use the formula:

[ \sum_{n=0}^{n=4} (-1)^n \cdot \frac{3}{5^n} ]

This notation represents the sum of the terms ( (-1)^n \cdot \frac{3}{5^n} ) for ( n ) going from 0 to 4.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
