This is probably wrong but is the answer...(no peeking mathsnerd1)

Oh I'm very aware of the questions he asks as most of them tend to stop me completely and leave me puzzling for an answer for the entire day or night!

LOOL, you wanted a challenge you'll be fine, think carefully

I know, I just tend to forget that when I see the questions they set me There have been quite a few that I can't do and a large majority tend to be part of a STEP question which I then go and finish because of answering the part I get set

Will it be 1/2? I'm just guessing here

Edit: Won't it tend towards 0?
Nope, and no. Look carefully at the expression - can you see a repeating unit?

Also, for the first question, is it cheating to just type both of them into you calculator? LOL or would you have to prove it?
Lol no, try again

Lol no, try again

I just thought the ones would keep cancelling and then you end up with a single one, I think I might try this one, I don't have my usual excuse of not knowing the notation!
EDIT: ZOMG is the answer infinity?! Or sum to infinity, or something like that?

I really can't see how to get an answer :-/
8. That was my last attempt, gotta do chemistry! If the answer isn't what I thought it was I have no hope as they were my only options loool

Look reeeaaaaally carefully at the expression - can you see something that's repeating over and over?

Let Can you see the repeating unit and how you could simplify things?

Would you make it equal to 1/(1+x) = x to form a quadratic?

I see so would the answer be:

x = (-1+sqrt5)/2

No xD I didn't neg you btw, I tried to balance it but I have already recently xD

x = (-1+sqrt5)/2 or x = (-1-sqrt5)/2
Yes, but the second answer is sheer lunacy, no?

Its not as bad as it first seems, you just need to simplify the expression and then it should all be pretty simple from then

Oh yeah, so its just the first one then, it all makes sense now

Let me try it again then lmao, that previous post saying final answer is now a lie haha
