accepted Value of $ \sum \limits_{k=1}^{81} \frac{1}{\sqrt{k} + \sqrt{k+1}} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{1} + \sqrt{2}} + \cdots + \frac{1}{\sqrt{80} + \sqrt{81}} $?

Thanks for your answer Jim.

@JanDvorak Sorry for the delay in replying to you.Yes, I have got the question right.I double-check things before putting them up on this reputed maths forum.

comment How many length n binary numbers have no consecutive zeroes ?Why we get a Fibonacci pattern?
Thanks for answering Rob.I had given up on getting any answers for this.I have no reason to doubt your answer (Your reputation says it all)

@AustinMohr I checked that.It was helpful but still doesn't clear the confusion I am facing, especially about the Fibonacci pattern.Is it OK if I let the question stay?

comment Is a sustained,lifelong dedication & commitment to Mathematics worth every bit of it?
@DonAntonio Thanks for pointing out the "worth" part.Let me put it in clear terms.By "Worth" I mean how much it will help one professionally if he is in engineering/IT field if he pursues maths deeply AND how much it would help him in describing/UNDERSTANDING the Natural/Physical world if he decides to read advanced texts later in life or wants to pursue pure science out of sheer interest (Texts like those on relativity, astronomy....later in life, where he loses interest in worldly affairs and goes for those out of sheer passion)

Daniel made a valid point.Yes, I enjoy Maths.I don't look at it as an onus.I used to hate it during teenage days but I developed an interest later and follow self-study through books,video series of Universities and Maths forums.One gets nowhere beyond pre-calculus if he doesn't have sincere interest in it.But I must add that I am not gifted.Only diligence and interest drives me.
