(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the sum of the sereis 3 + 2 + 4/3 + 8/9 + 16/27 + ... and provide justification for your work.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I first thought that this was true

inf

sigma 2^k/3^(k-1)

k=0

This would be the correct series if we let the first term given in the series, given in the statement problem be the zeroth term and so on. I however had no idea how to find the sum of this series because of the different powers that occur in the numerator and denominator... thanks for any help
