The book has that expression equal to

[tex]\sum[/tex] (4/11)^n - [tex]\sum[/tex] (-7/11)^n

I'm not seeing how the first part changes to (4/11)^n. Wouldn't it be (2^2+2^n) & not 4^n? Or is there something else I'm missing?

Fact:

[tex](x^y)^z = x^{yz}[/tex].

Does that help you out?

[tex](x^y)^z = x^{yz}[/tex].

Does that help you out?
