Telescoping Problem #7: the answer of [edited out] given as correct is not the value of n: plug that in, you get .00004...
The correct answer is either 21 or 22 (both answers round to .998, however 22 has the best results.

the problem as stated is correct; you should view the solutions to see why;

Looked for dispute/contact button. Was not on screen (using iPhone) problem asks for value of n. [edited out] is value of n (n+1). I agree with solution, just not with the question as worded "value of n". Thanks for your feedback.
