tn=(2n-1)/2n
  =1-1/2n
Sn=∑1-1/2n =n-∑1/2n (gp series)
    =n-1+2-n

Sn=1/2 + 3/4 + 7/8 ........ n terms
    = (1- 1/2) + (1- 1/4) + ( 1 - 1/8 )...... n terms
=n -1/2[1-2--n]/1-1/2
n -1/2 ×2[1-2--n-n]
n-1+2--n

Dear student,
Please find the solution to your problem.
 
tn = (2n – 1)/2n
   = 1 – 1/2n
Sn = ∑1 – 1/2n  = n – ∑1/2n (gp series)
     = n – 1 + 2-n
 
Thanks and regards,
Kushagra
