# Program to find Sum of a Series a^1/1! + a^2/2! + a^3/3! + a^4/4! +…….+ a^n/n!

Given two values ‘a’ and ‘n’, find sum of series a^1/1! + a^2/2! + a^3/3! + a^4/4! +…….+ a^n/n!.

Examples :

```Input : a = 2 and n = 5
Output : 6.26667
2^1/1! + 2^2/2! + 2^3/3! + 2^4/4! +
2^5/5!
= 2/1 + 4/2 +  8/6 + 16/24 + 32/120
=  6.26667
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

A simple solution is to one by one compute values of individual terms and keep adding them to result.

We can find solution with only one loop. The idea is to just use previous values and multiply by (a/i) where i is the no of term which we need to find.

```for finding 1st term:-  a/1
for finding 2nd term:-  (1st term) * a/2
for finding 3rd term:-  (2nd term) * a/3
.
.
.
for finding nth term:-  ((n-1)th term) * a/n

```

Illustration:

```Input: a = 2 and n = 5
By multiplying Each term by 2/i
1st term :-              2/1 = 2
2nd term :- (1st term) * 2/2 =(2)*1 = 2
3rd term :- (2nd term) * 2/3 = 4/3
4th term :- (3rd term) * 2/4 = 2/3
5th term :- (4th term) * 2/5 = 4/15
=> 2 + 2 + 4/3 + 2/3 + 4/15
Output: sum = 6.26667
```
