Program to find the sum of series 1^2/1! + 2^2/2! + 3^2/3! + 4^2/4! + ... n^2/n!

/*
C program to find sum of following series
* 1^2/1! + 2^2/2! + 3^2/3! + 4^2/4! + ... n^2/n!
*/

Output

Run(1)
Enter total number of terms: 3
Sum of the series is: 4.500000
Run(2)
Enter total number of terms: 4
Sum of the series is: 2.666667
