What i had in mind is Eratosthenes Sieve:

for 2: we exlude the first 1/2

for 3:then we exclude 1/3 but half of them have factor 2 so we
actually exclude 1/2*3

for 5:then we exclude 1/5 but half of them have factor 2 and 1/3
have factor 3 so we actually exclude 1/2*3*5

So the Series is 1=1/2 + 1/(2*3) + 1/(2*3*5)+....

You answer but you are actually wrong!!!!!!!!!!
