Hi,



kl[n_] := HoldForm[ 1/(2n + 1) - 1/(4n + 2) - 
1/(4n + 4)];

reihe = Sum[kl[n], {n, 1, 5}];

(reihe + Hold[] //.
HoldForm[a_] + b_. + Hold[c___] :> (d = 
Evaluate[a];
Append[Hold[c], d] + b)) /. Hold[c___] :> 
HoldForm[Plus[c]]

Regards

  Jens

| I want to get the following output for the 
series:
|
| (1 - 1/2 - 1/4) + (1/3 - 1/6 - 1/8) + (1/5 - 
1/10 - 1/12) +
|  (1/7 - 1/14 - 1/16) . . .
|
| What I did was
|
| kl[n_]:=HoldForm[ 1/(2n+1)-1/(4n+2)-1/(4n+4)]
|
| then I enter eg:
|
| reihe= Sum[kl[n],{n,1,5}]
|
| This works quite good, but the fractions are 
completely unevaluated
| (because of HoldForm, I know) and display as
|
|     1
| ----------
| 4 2 + 2
|
| But I want them displayed as
|
| 1
| --
| 10
|
| Is there a way to evaluate parts inside a 
HoldForm, so that the
| fractions are evaluated but not the sums?
|
