can the lower bound of a summation(sigma) be any real number ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i.e ex: sigma(LB:sqrt(2) or (9/2) etc )

Even a lower bound be a real number is possible or not can upper bound be any real number or is it a strict rule that '1' should be added to lower bound to get the consecutive number.?

i.e. ex: LB + sqrt(2) or (9/2) etc.
