1. ## Summation problem __

Knowing that 1/(1-x) = Σ x^n , for n=0 to inf.
Can anyone help me to find a power series summation rule for the function 1/(1-x^2) .

And also for which values does it converge ?

$\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}x^{2n}

4. You know that $\frac{1}{1-t} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}t^n$. If $t = x^2$, then $\frac{1}{1-x^2} = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(x^2)^n = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty}{x}^{2n}$.
