Find the sum of first n terms of the series

(i) 7 + 77 + 777 + … . (ii) 0.4 + 0.94 + 0.994 + .

Answer :


(i) Series = 7 + 77 + 777 + …..n terms

Series = [9×(1 + 11 + 111 + …..)] ( Multiplying and dividing by 9)


Series = [9 + 99 + 999 + …..]


Series = [(10–1) + (100–1) + (1000–1) + …..]


Series = [10 + 100 + 1000 + ….. – (n×1)]


Series = [10 + 100 + 1000 + …..] –


We find the sum of 10 + 100 + 1000…..n terms as:


First term = 10


Common ratio = = 10


Sum of n terms =


Sum of n terms =


Sum of n terms =


Series = [] –


Series =


(ii) Series = 0.4 + 0.94 + 0.994 + …..n terms


Series = (1–0.6) + (1–0.06) + (1–0.006) + ……..


Series = n×1 – (0.6 + 0.06 + 0.006 + ….)


We find the sum of 0.6 + 0.06 + 0.006…..n terms as:


First term = 0.6


Common ratio = =


Sum of n terms =


Sum of n terms =


Sum of n terms =


Series = n –
