Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've come across this series and I'm not sure in which direction I should be looking to get an equation for the sum. I've tried some simple methods but have come up blank.

[tex]\sum\limits_{n = 0}^{n - 1} {nr^n }[/tex]

Can anyone give me a nudge in the right direction?
