Can anyone help me out with calculating the partial sum of an alternating series? For example, how would I find the sum correct to 4 decimal places of:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What I tried was finding how many terms it would take the have an error that was < .0001 then found the sum with that many terms... I got 0.10969 as the partial sum using 4 terms.
