To do this question it is easier to work backwards from the qanswers.

 

Take the first answer.

 

\(\displaystyle\sum_{j=1}^7 \frac{1}{2}(j+1)\\ When\;\; j=1\quad \text{The first term is }\quad \frac{1}{2}(1+1)=1 \quad \text {that is good}\\ When \;\; j=2\quad \text{The second term is }\quad \frac{1}{2}(2+1)=\frac{3}{2}= \quad \text {that is no good}\\\)

 

So it is not the first one.

If you think about it, the bottom of the fractions are   \(2^0,2^1,2^2,....\)     and the top is just 1.   So the bottom is a power of 2.

 

Which out of the 4 seems likely?

 

Test that one, like I tested the first one,  and see if it works. 

 

So what is the answer?     frown

 

Please no one answer over me.

Yes that becasue you need to think about my answer.

Not everything in life is instant!

 

Have you worked through how I looked at the first possibility and then dismissed it as wrong?

So I believe it has to be either C or D.

Well have you tested either of them to see which one is right ?

 

Take the last one.

\(2^{j-1}\)

1) when j =1 what is the value?

2) when j=2 what is the value?

3) when j=3 waht is the value?

 

I want you to give me the answers to these questions.

Is this the right sequence?
