Simple maths problem.

*a _{n}* is defined as 1 + (1/

*n*).

*S _{n}* is defined as

*a*+

_{1}*a*+ ... +

_{2}*a*.

_{n}So we're gonna calculate *S _{15}*, and we're gonna use object-oriented programming because I'm me.

use v5.16; package Local::App { use Zydeco; use List::Util 'sum'; class Calc { method a ( PositiveInt $n ) = 1 + (1/$n); method S ( PositiveInt $n ) = sum( map $self->a($_), 1 .. $n ) +; } } my $calc = Local::App->new_calc; say $calc->S(15);

Or, using rational numbers:

use v5.16; package Local::App { use Zydeco; use List::Util 'sum'; class Calc { method r ( $n ) = 1/$n; method a ( PositiveInt $n ) = 1 + $self->r($n); method S ( PositiveInt $n ) = sum( map $self->a($_), 1 .. $n ) +; class +Rational { use Math::BigRat; method r ( $n ) = Math::BigRat->new("1/$n"); } } } my $calc = Local::App->new_calc_rational; say $calc->S(15);
