1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The question is attachedk 2. Relevant equations Sn = n/2[2a+(n-1)d] Sn = (a x (1-r^n))/1-r 3. The attempt at a solution I already found the general formulas: Tortoise: Sn = n/2(40) Hare: Sn = (1000 x [1-0.5^n])/0.5 And I know that there tortoise will finish the race in 100 minutes. But I don't think the hare ever finishes the race? This is the work I did so far trying to solve for the hare: 2000 = (1000(1-0.5^n))/0.5 1000 = 1000(1-0.5^n) 1 = 1-0.5^n 2 = 0.5^n But 0.5 the the power of anything can never equal 2? Thank you!
