See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1.  Given

The given sequence is j=14j1j+1.

Step 2.  To determine

We have to write the sum without using sigma notation.

Step 3.  Calculation

We’ll plug the values for j, to get rid of the sigma notation.

j=14j1j+1=111+1+212+1+313+1+414+1=02+13+24+45

Hence the sum is 02+13+24+45.
