I need to calculate easy solution for following equation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x + x^2 + x^3 +.......+ x^n = 1

I need a simple formula to calculate value of x that satisfies above equation for any value of n.

This is for accounting/MBA has nothing to do with Physics, but I am sure anyone will be able to help me out.

Thanks.
