Let's look at the first few terms

 

-4 +  2  - 1 +  1/2.......

 

The common ratio, r,  =  -1/2   .....since  l r  l  < 1....this will converge

And the first term is  -4

 

So...the sum  is given by

 

[ first term  ]  /  [ 1  - r ]  =

 

-4  /  [ 1 - (-1/2) ] =

 

-4  /  [ 3/2]   =

 

-8 / 3
