To write: The sum 12+23+34+45++1920 in sigma notation.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 13E

The sum 12+23+34+45++1920 expressed in sigma notation as i=119ii+1.

Explanation of Solution

Definition used:

If am,am+1,...,an are real numbers and m and n are integers such that mn, then i=mnai=am+am+1+am+2++an1+an.

Calculation:

Here, the sum 12+23+34+45++1920 is the sum of 19 numbers and number is of the form ii+1, where i varies from 1 to 19.

Thus, by the above definition the sum 12+23+34+45++1920 expressed as follows.

12+23+34+45++1920=i=119ii+1

Thus, the sum 12+23+34+45++1920 expressed in sigma notation as i=119ii+1.
