```							Dear Himanshu To find the sum 1/2 +1/6+..1/k(k+1).We know that 1/k(k+1) = 1/k-1/(k+1).Therefore  the term by term we can write as below:1/2 = (1//1-1/2).1/6 = (1/2-1/3).1/12 = (1/3-1/4).1/(20 = (1/4 -1/5).................................................................1/k9k+1) = 1/k-1/(k+1)Adding the  k terms  we get:1/2 +1/6+1/12+1/20 +....1/(k+1) = 1/2 - 1/(k+1), as all other terms on the right cancel while adding.Therefore the sum (1/2+1/6+1/12+1/20 ...1/k(k+1) = 1/2-1/(k+1) = (2k+2-2)/2(k+1)= 2k/2(k+1) = k/(k+1) Here k = 13  Hence answer. = = 13/14 RegardsArun (askIITians forum expert)
