If S represents the sum of numbers 1/n, where 101<= n <=150 what is the
value of S? Sorry , don't remember the choices on this one.

Please read <= as "less than or equal to"

Thanks for your inputs.

That's weird without any formated answers to pick in.

S(n) = ln(n)+0,577, hope it helps :-p

Sorry but I can not write anything more without details

Please elaborate [#permalink]  08 Nov 2004, 16:00
Could you please elaborate on this equation? S(n) = ln(n)+0,577 . I mean how did you arrive at this equation?
I got this as the third question on a test and I had no clue even on how to approach this question. I tried to apply the formula to find the sum of n terms in an arithmetic progression , but then the question is asking for the sum of 1/n terms where 101 <= n <= 150 and these terms do not form an arithmetic progression. yea?

I would choose the answer which is closest to my estimation.

I think the sum would be close to 0.4...

Depending on the dispersion of the answer choices a reasonable estimate is roughly 1/125 * 50 = 50/125 = 2/5
