**I posted this initially in Pre-Calculus, but, seeing several people with similar doubts have posted this question here, I'll do the same, even though I haven't started Calculus**

I am investigating the sum of infinite sequences.

such that: t0 = 1 and tn = (x ln (a))n/n!

They tell me to first consider the following sequences of terms:

1, (ln 2)/1, (ln 2)2/2x1, (ln 2)3/3x2x1

They then ask me to calculate the sum Sn of the first n terms of the sequence for when 0 is bigger or equal to 0 and smaller or equal to 10.

I couldn't however, find any relationship between the terms that indicates whether the sequence is arithmetic or geometric.

So are they asking me to simply grab the calculator, calculate the values and write them down?

How do I sum?

Thanks,
