# simple series progression

I am trying to find an expression that summarizes the following series:

...0.01  0.05  0.1  0.5  1  5 10 50 100 500...


I know this is a very simple question, but for some reason I can't think of any simple formula that summarizes the series above.

I was thinking about 10^n, with -2 < n < 2, but this doesn't give the 0.05, 0.5, etc. in between.

Care to give me some tips please?

Thanks so much for all the help!

Use an if. The ratio alternates between 2 and 5. You can also play at trick like this: $7/2 + 3/2*(-1)^n$. Make sure you get the phase right.
