Just to update how my progress is, still no luck. None of these
mathematical series exercises are clicking for me. I was able to do
the basic geometric and arithmetic series, but everything else is just
not working. I've tried many things to get an answer and nothing comes
close. The closest I can get is an answer where the higher the index
goes the larger or smaller the number gets.
I tried making a program which would compute what term is at position
i. So, i=0 would be 2, i=1 would be(expt(/(- x 1)(+ x 1))1) and i=2
would be (/ 1(add1 i)) which was successful, the program works as
expected. I am having trouble with figuring out how to find the series
when it alternates between multiplication and addittion. My play was
to use the working locator function and create a new series function
which would multiply for i=odd, and add for i=even but it still
doesn't produce near what is expected.
Im getting pretty frustrated with this and help would be appreciated,
again, I can clear this up if it sounds too confusing. Just let me
