Sigma notation 2019-12-04
From Kenneth:

What would be used for the top and bottom indices for the sigma sign in my example shown below?
If the amounts were 1 + 2 + 3, the top index would be 3 and the bottom would be i = 1, but if the amounts are 1 + 2 + 4, or 1 + 0.05 + 1/3, what would the indices be since these amounts are in an uneven pattern.

I thank you for your reply and explanation
