Series and Products

Many trigonometric series simplify and add in a very satisfying way.

is a geometric sequence with first termand common ratioso we can use the formula for the sum of a geometric sequence to find the sum of the series.

In general

Sums like these lead naturally to proofs by induction and are generally quite easy to prove.
