Following is the Java program to find the sum of the series −

1/1! + 2/2! + 3/3! + 4/4! +…….+ n/n!

## Example

Live Demo

import java.io.*;
import java.lang.*;
public class Demo{
public static double pattern_sum(double val){
double residual = 0, factorial_val = 1;
for (int i = 1; i <= val; i++){
factorial_val = factorial_val * i;
residual = residual + (i / factorial_val);
}
return (residual);
}
public static void main(String[] args){
double val = 6;
System.out.println("The sum of the series is : " + pattern_sum(val));
}
}

## Output

The sum of the series is : 2.7166666666666663

A class named Demo contains a function named ‘pattern_sum’. This function takes a double valued number as parameter, and iterates through the value and calculates the series value of (1/1! + 2/2! + ..) and so on. In the main function, the value is defined and the function ‘pattern_sum’ is called by passing this value. The output is displayed on the console.
