The series -- you should know that on sight.

The fine print underneath the series is unreadable. It looks like "Where x is ....", but I can't read the "...".

You are assuming x=1 here. If the first line of text is, for example, "Where x=1.000", that tells an engineer how many digits it actually does take.
