Believe me guys. First person was right. It is 0.002 + e^(2*pi) + infinite_sum_starting_in_one_of_(1/2^n). So it's not e^(2*i), nor the infinite_sum adds to zero; just take 1/2 + 1/4 and you'll have 0.75; whole infinite_sum adds to 1. Total check sum = $536.49.

$536.49

not true, it's $0.002 or 0.2 cents.

e^(i*pi) = -1

sum of 1/2^n from 1 to infinity is 1

You are wrong, e^(i*pi) is a complex number with real part=0.

1/2^n from 1 to infinity is 0.

It's 0.2 cents.

no the second comment is really right in the reasoning, third is just wrong

Last commentor: Read the check again, the exponent of e is "i*Pi", not "2*Pi".

My 0.2 cents.
