Question:

Find the sum of each of the following infinite series :

$8+4 \sqrt{2}+4+2 \sqrt{2}+\ldots . \infty$

 

Solution:

It is Infinite Geometric Series.

Here, a=8

$r=\frac{4 \sqrt{2}}{8}=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$

The formula used: Sum of an infinite Geometric series $=\frac{\mathrm{a}}{1-\mathrm{r}}$

$\therefore S u m=\frac{8}{1-\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}}=\frac{8 \sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{2}-1}$

Sum $=\frac{8 \sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{2}-1}$
