The initial term is 4 (lets call it a_{1}) and each succeeding term is multiplied by 1/4 so this series falls into the category of an infinite geometric series where the absolute value of the multiplier (lets call it "r") is < 1. Consequently, the series converges and it converges to a sum using the equation:

S = a_{1}/(1 - r)

S = 4/(1 - 1/4)

S = 4/(3/4)

S = 4•4/3

S = 16/3
