Find the sum of the series Σ((3n+2)/n).... (confirmation)

In summary, the formula for finding the sum of the series Σ((3n+2)/n) is S = 3 + 7/2 + 11/3 + 15/4 + ..., where n represents the number of terms in the series. To determine the value of n, you need to know the total number of terms in the series. The formula can be simplified to S = 3 × (n+1) and there are various methods for solving this type of series, including the arithmetic-geometric mean method and the telescoping series method. This formula can also be applied to other similar series, but the specific values may vary.

Looks good. You could have added a first step: ##\displaystyle \sum_{i=0}^\infty \frac{3n}{n!} = \sum_{i=1}^\infty \frac{3n}{n!}## as 3*0=0.
