For example, if I wanted the summation of a seried with the increment of the variable values being two, would I have to write earlier in the expression: let [variable] = 2*x ? I don't know how to do TEX code, so here's a picture: Thanks! Attached Images

\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{(2n-1)} would be over all odd numbers

replace (2n-1) for even numbers with just (2n)
