i need help with finding a function that describes this sires
{a=1+2-3x4÷5+6-7x8÷9... }
i know that it most likely converges on 0 ( the values fluctuate between + and - #'s and get smaller as X?infinity)

here are some values for the sires


excluding the first six terms, the terms switch between positive and negative after two iterations.

the denominators stay the same for four iterations then increase
i hope this is enough have fun
