I'm reviewing for my calculus II exam, and I'm unable to solve any problems of this type "find the sum of the series." sometimes i'll be given a series in sigma notation (like this problem), and sometimes i'll be given the first few terms of the series. Either way, I'm completely lost here. I could use a step by step guide on how to solve this type of problem. Thanks!
