Sum of series 2/3 – 4/5 + 6/7 – 8/9 + ——- upto n terms

Given the value of n, find the sum of the series (2 / 3) – (4 / 5) + (6 / 7) – (8 / 9) + – – – – – – – upto n terms.

Examples :

Input : n = 5
Output : 0.744012
Series : (2 / 3) - (4 / 5) + (6 / 7) - (8 / 9) + (10 / 11)

Input : n = 7
Output : 0.754268
Series : (2 / 3) - (4 / 5) + (6 / 7) - (8 / 9) +
         (10 / 11) - (12 / 13) + (14 / 15)
