Does anyone know what that series sum is? I could probably go through my old math books, but I'm feeling lazy right now.
Pretty sure it has to be 42 for all the right reasons.
This made it's rounds 3 years ago. Will find out if I still have the answer.
OK found a reference. He was contesting his phone bill. So he sent this, because he felt he owed nothing. So the answer is 0.Here is a quote. "CalcMajor January 27, 2007 at 5:01 pmnoob mathematicians ;-p the total is essentially 0.e^([pi]i) = -1just like ln(-1)=[pi]ii, indicates an imaginary number which has a few different calculations than real numbers. You can do it by hand, or just say ’screw it’ and use a TI-83 or equivalent.∑1/2^n = 1Even though beginners will translate it as .999… that number is a fallacious number, and is thus translated as 1. (Just like 2/3 is equal to .666…, 3/3 = .999… AND 1)And finally, when dealing with money, anything less than a cent, can NOT be rounded up to a cent. It is in fact rounded down.Plan and simple, he gave them a check for nothing… and is refusing to pay his bill."
