Did I do something wrong? Your value of is incorrect. As the sum starts at you'd need to do Putting in this value of a should give

As I understood it as it's the first term a would be the value of f(k) at k=1 as that's where the sum starts from. I don't think the series starts at 2 as a is the initial value before anything is added
Just a question I am new to series, because this geometric series starts at n=1 would you not try to get the power in terms of n - 1?
