Video tutorial: Infinite series 3

Posted by Doug Hull,

In this short video, I explore the math behind this joke: An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar.
  The 1st orders a 1     beer.
  The 2nd orders   1/2 a beer.
  The 3rd orders   1/4 a beer.
  ...
  The bartender says
  "You're all idiots",
  and pours two beers.
We will make sure MATLAB shows values as fractions and not decimals and plot the cumulative some of this series
