1st Term: (-1)^0(1/2) -> 1/2
2nd Term: (-1)^1(1/4) -> -1/4

3rd Term: (-1)^2(1/6) -> 1/6
4th Term: (-1)^3(1/8) -> -1/8

We can see the first part (-1)^k does nothing than to alternate the sign of the outcome. The next part (1/2k) will progressively get smaller as k increases. This will be then subtracted from the previous positive number making that number smaller.

I figure T will be between 1/4 and 1/2 since the smallest base term is 1/4 (1/2-1/4) and adding 10 smaller terms shouldn't make it exceed 1/2
