A geometric series has first term a. Find the range of values of a if the sum to 1 infinity of the series is . [3] 2 1 The rth term of a series is given by Tr = 2 r + ln 32 r. Find the sum of the first N 3 terms. [4] Jon wants a gigantic cake prepared for his mothers birthday. The cake is to 9 consist of 5 layers, where each layer has a square base with length that is of 10 the layer beneath it and a constant height of h units. The cost of the cake is proportional to its volume and the largest layer costs $200.

(c)

Given that the largest layer has length a units, find the cost of the whole cake, rounded to the nearest dollar. [4] Jon also wants candles to be placed at each layer such that the total number of candles used is 75. If the largest layer has d2 candles and each subsequent layer has d candles less than the one directly below, find the number of candles placed at the top layer. [3]
