I am sorely tempted to use that during one of my lectures this semester. Except that the chapter is specifically on infinite series... maybe I can use it to introduce the meaning of capital Sigma.

The brain is greater than the inverse of the sum of bears. I think.

Okay, a little less translated, ie, what does the n over sigma over n=1 mean?

Capital sigma is just a fancy way of writing down "add these numbers together".

It's the sum of all bears in a set (bears 1 to n in a set of n bears) divided by the number of bears (n), I think. Hence average bear. But I'm not great at this stuff. :P
