(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Not expected to do for Home work but i found the problem interesting. The problem is exactly as stated in Att.

2. Relevant equations

Not sure:: d = C/pi?

3. The attempt at a solution

Really I don't see a systematic way of approaching this problem, but these are the ideas ! have: Notice that the limit of the of the partial sums must be = 1 ( for n = 1 to infinity; n n--> inf.) which is the radius of the outer circles. So C_{n}:: the expression to be found is convergent. Here also C_{1 }> C_{2}. 0 < C_{n}< C_{n - 1 }< 1. that lets me consider 1 > 1/(n + 1). which encourages .. 1 - 1/ (n +1) as the partial sum taking the lim n --> to inf. i get 1 then adding i get 1/n(n+1) for diameter of C_{n}Is this reasoning correct ? If not I'd appreciate a prod in right direction.

thanks guys
