# Sum of the Series 1 + x/1 + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + .. + x^n/n

This is a mathematical series program where a user must enter the number of terms up to which the sum of the series is to be found. Following this, we also need the value of x, which forms the base of the series.

Examples :

```Input : base = 2, range = 5
Output : 18.07

Input : base = 1, range = 10
Output : 3.93
```

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

Method 1 (Simple) We just need to follow the series and put the values of the base at x and value range at n and get the sum.

Method 2 (Optimized) We can avoid use of pow() function and reuse the previously computed power.
