Sum of the series 0.6, 0.06, 0.006, 0.0006, …to n terms
  • Last Updated : 19 Mar, 2021

Given the number of terms i.e. n. Find the sum of the series 0.6, 0.06, 0.006, 0.0006, …to n terms.
Examples: 
 

Input : 2
Output : 0.65934

Input : 3
Output : 0.665334

 

Lets denote the sum by S: 
Using the formula S_{n}=\frac{a\left ( 1-r^{n} \right )}{1-r}   , we have [since r<1]
S_{n}=\frac{\frac{6}{10}\left \{ 1-\left ( \frac{1}{10} \right )^n\right \}}{1-\frac{1}{10}}
S_{n}=\frac{6}{9}\left ( 1-\frac{1}{10^n} \right )
S_{n}=\frac{2}{3}\left ( 1-\frac{1}{10^n} \right )
Hence the required sum is S_{n}=\frac{2}{3}\left ( 1-\frac{1}{10^n} \right )
Below is the implementation: 
 

C++




// CPP program to find sum of 0.6, 0.06,
// 0.006, 0.0006, ...to n terms
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// function which return the
// the sum of series
float sumOfSeries(int n)
{
    return (0.666) * (1 - 1 / pow(10, n));
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 2;
    cout << sumOfSeries(n);
}

Java

    // the sum of series
    static double sumOfSeries(int n)
    {
        return (0.666) * (1 - 1 /Math. pow(10, n));
    }
     
     
    // Driver code
    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        int n = 2;
        System.out.println ( sumOfSeries(n));
         
    }
