I've been asked to show that the series:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

That it telescopes, hence find a forumla for its partial sum, and then state the limit.

I'm sure I could find a formula for its partial sum IF I could simply show that it telescopes, for me I can't see how it does. Maybe I have a wrong definition of telescoping, but I thought it was when the majority of terms cancel, where in that series I can't see happening. Also I believe from inspection the limit is (ln 1).

Any help? :)

Thanks
