In order for you to write that in terms of n, there needs to be a canceling factor. There must be a way to rewrite it so that subtraction is involved. In another words, if the corresponding infinite series is divergent, there's no way to write it in terms of n unless you want to show the pattern with numbers and then use the "...".
