Q:
# In two or more complete sentences, describe the difference between an infinite series and a finite series.

Accepted Solution

A:

A finite series converges to a finite value when the terms are added together, while an infinite series diverges to make its sum infinite.

An alternative definition is the number of terms. A finite number of times means the series is finite even if the sum of the terms is divergent. A convergent series nevertheless has an infinite number of terms.
