I have this expression which I have to simplify:

∑

_{i=1}

^{log(n)}1

^{(log(n) - i)}

And my book apparently simplifies it to being log(n).

I am struggling to figure out why this is the case. Could anyone help?

Thanks!

Secondly, what is the value of each term? What do you get when you raise 1 to the power of any other real number?

EDIT: Uh oh - Jinxed again!

Ohh, I see thanks!

We add 1 log(n) times over and over again!

Thanks for the help everyone!
