Product of the sum of first 9 terms of $a_{n}$ and the sum of all terms of $c_{n}$ = 7710
Given sequence |$a_{n}$| = -5, 10, -20, 40......... This is a geometric sequence with common ratio = -2 By $a_{n}$ = a $r^{n-1}$. Ninth term $a_{9}$ = (-5) $(-2)^{9-1}$ = (-5) $(-2)^{8}$ = (-5)$\times$(256) = -1280 The sum of first 9 terms of $a_{n}$ =$\frac{9}{2}$($a_{1}$ + $a_{9}$) = $\frac{9}{2}$(- 5 - 1280 ) = $\frac{9}{2}$(- 1285 ) = -5782.5 |$c_{n}$| = -2, 1, $-\frac{1}{2}$, $\frac{1}{4}$.............. This is a geometric sequence with common ratio = $-\frac{1}{2}$ The sum of the all terms of infinite geometric series $c_{n}$ = $\frac{c_{1}}{1 - r}$ = $\frac{-2}{1 - ( -\frac{1}{2})}$ = $\frac{-2}{1 + \frac{1}{2}}$ = $\frac{-2}{\frac{3}{2}}$ = $-\frac{4}{3}$ Product of the sum of first 9 terms of $a_{n}$ and the sum of all terms of $c_{n}$ = (-5782.5)$\times$($-\frac{4}{3}$) = 7710
