My question is one of vocabulary. What does it mean to evaluate an infinite series in closed form?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If I have a Series: [tex]\Sigma[/tex] 1/ (N^{2}), as N goes from 1 to infinity.

This is similar to a test question I'm working on so, I DO NOT want to know how to solve it, I just want to know exactly what is meant by evaluating an infinite series inclosed form.
