I'm trying to simplify a summation. I have something that looks like

[tex]

\sum \sqrt{(1/4)(i)} (1/4)

[/tex]

Granted I might have made a mistake setting this up which would make my question irrelevant but anyway.

2. Relevant equations

there are equations for i, i squared and i cubed

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't think theres an equation for the square root of i, so can i square the whole problem to make it just i?

So it would be like...

[tex]

\sum \((1/4)(i)(1/16)

[/tex]
