Add 1.0/1.0+1.0/2.0+... when you do integer division (e.g., 1/2) regardless of the variable the result is going into it still still gets truncated. If you haven't already make sure your result is declared as type double otherwise nothing will work.
sum = sum +i(1.0\i); That's you're killer. First of all, use the correct division symbol: /
Secondly, why is there an 'i' in front of the division?
That statement, corrected, should be:
sum = sum + ( 1.0 / i );
But in the loop's first iteration, you add 1.0 / 0, which is...um....not defined mathematically. In actuality, you get a really huge result.
It didn't work because u are making sum zero in each iteration of the loop .. so just remove sum=0 from the loop.. it's enough to initialize it before the loop.
for (i = 0; i <= 10; i++)
sum = sum +i(1.0\i);
While I agree it looks better to initialize sum outside the loop, it is NOT being reset to 0 each iteration, any more than counter i is. The initialization statement is executed only once.
