3.6 Sum of Geometric Series

Geometric series is the sum of geometric sequence.
Example:
a) 1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + ......... + 1024
b) 2 + 6 + 18 + 54 +........... + 118098

Method 1:
1) Write the sum in an ordinary order
2) Write the sum again by multiplying by the ratio
3) Subtract both the sums.
4) Solve for S

Question:
Find the sum of the series 2 + 6 + 18 + 54 +........... + 486
Then by subtracting 3S - S all the terms except the first and last cancel out:
S = 2 + 6 + 18 + 54 +........... + 486
3S = 6 + 18 + 54 +........... + 486 + (486x3)
-----------------------------------------------------------
3S-S = 486 x 3 - 2
2S = 486 x 3 - 2
2S = (1458 - 2)
2S = 1456
S = 728
Answer: The sum of the series is 728
