1.) 

The first term of a sequence is 2, and each subsequent term is the reciprocal of the square of the preceding term. What is the positive square root of the fifth term?

 

2.)

Calculate

\[
\left(1 - \frac12 \right) \cdot \left(1 - \frac13 \right) \cdot \left(1 - \frac14\right) \dotsm \left(1 - \frac {1}{2009} \right).
\]

 

3.)

What is the maximum number of consecutive positive integers that can be added together to create a sum less than 400?

 

4.)

What is the units digit of $2^{1993} + 3^{1993}$?

 

5.)

What is the value of the sum 

$\dfrac {1}{1\cdot 3} + \dfrac {1}{3\cdot 5} + \dfrac {1}{5\cdot 7} + \dfrac {1}{7\cdot 9} + \cdots + \dfrac {1}{199\cdot 201}$

? Express your answer as a fraction in simplest form.

 

6.)

Compute

\[1 \cdot \frac {1}{2} + 2 \cdot \frac {1}{4} + 3 \cdot \frac {1}{8} + \dots + n \cdot \frac {1}{2^n} + \dotsb.\]

1)

 

2, 1/4, 16, 1/256, 65,536........etc.

Sqrt(65,536) = 256

 

3)

[a*(a+1)] / 2 =400, solve for a

a = ~ 27, so that:

1+2+3+.........+27 = 378

 

4)

2^1993 + 3^1993 =2^1 + 3^1 =5 - last digit !!.
