**Trying to solve this infinite series??**

Hey folks! I've spent hours trying to solve this and have exhausted all available resources.. I just need to be pointed in the right direction!

## Homework Statement

Compute the sum of the infinite series (I believe this is an arithmetico geometric series):

[itex]\sum \frac{n+1}{4^{n}}[/itex]

For n=0..infinity

## Homework Equations

I know the standard way to solve a geometric series, but don't know how to solve this type of series.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I've set up something like this:

[itex]S_{n} = \sum \frac{n+1}{4^{n}}[/itex]

I've tried multiplying by 1/4, 4 and other logical things, but am just not sure how to proceed.

Thanks in advance!
