Well I was able to go through the triple summation to get ((64)(8)^(n))/21 - ((8)(4)^(n))/3 + ((2)(2)^(n))/3 - 1/21

At this point I don't understand the whole little o notation, my book doesn't even have information on it, and the internet was not making too much sense either. I'm trying to get an understanding of that little example at the bottom of the problem, any ideas? Thanks again
