$\sum_{r=1}^{n}\;\frac{r}{(r+1)!}=$

$(a)\;2-\frac{1}{(n+1)!}\qquad(b)\;1-\frac{1}{(n+1)!}\qquad(c)\;1-\frac{1}{n!}\qquad(d)\;None$

1 Answer

Answer : (b) $\;1-\frac{1}{(n+1)!}$
$a_{r}=\frac{r}{(r+1)!}=\frac{(r+1)-1}{(r+1)!}$
$=\frac{1}{r!}-\frac{1}{(r+1)!}$
$a_{1}=\frac{1}{1!}-\frac{1}{2!}$
$a_{2}=\frac{1}{2!}-\frac{1}{3!}$
$a_{n}=\frac{1}{n!}-\frac{1}{(n+1)!}$
$S=1-\frac{1}{(n+1)!}.$
