Sum of the series 0.7, 0.77, 0.777, … upto n terms

Given n the number of terms. Find the sum of the series 0.7, 0.77, 0.777, … upto n terms.

Examples :

Input : 2
Output : 1.46286

Input : 3
Output : 2.23609



Approach Used :
Let’s denote the sum of the series by S:

Sum = 0.7 + 0.77 + 0.777 + …. up to n terms
= 7/9(0.9 + 0.99 + 0.999 + … up to n terms)
= 7/9[(1 – 0.1) + (1 – 0.01) + (1-0.001) + … up to n terms]
= 7/9[(1 + 1 + 1… upto n terms) – (1/10 + 1/100 + 1/1000 + … upto n terms)]
= 7/9[n – 0.1 * (1 – (0.1)n)/(1 – 0.1)]
= 7/81[9n – 1 + 10-n]

Below is the Implementation to find the sum of given series:
