## C Basic Declarations and Expressions: Exercise-45 with Solution

Write a C program to calculate the value of S where S = 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + … + 1/50.

**Sample Solution:**

**C Code:**

```
#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
float S = 0;
int i;
// Loop to calculate the sum
for(i=1; i<=50; i++) {
S += (float)1/i;
}
// Print the result
printf("Value of S: %.2f\n", S);
return 0;
}
```

Sample Output:

Value of S: 4.50
