Plotting sequence
07/24/05 9:54pm

I thought I was plotting a simple sequence:
a[n_] := 16 (-0.5)^(n - 1), however, I keep getting the following error:

\!\(Plot::"plnr" ... is not a machine-size \
real number at n = 8.333333333333333`*^-8."\)

Here is my Plot command:

Plot[Evaluate[Table[a[n]]], {n, 0, 10}];

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
