1+2x+3x^{2}+4x^{3}..........to infinity

sum of this series

^{4}+ ......... (1)

....Then : x.S = x + 2x² + 3x³ + 4x

^{4}+ ..........(2) ( multiply both sides by x)

.........................................

Then, ... Eq(1) - Eq(2) ... gives

S - xS = 1 + x + x² + x³ + ...

S ( 1 - x ) = 1 + x + x² + x³ + ...

The expression on the right hand sides is infinite GP of a = 1, r = x

So the sum of this GP is 1/(1-x)

Or S ( 1 - x ) = 1/(1-x)

S = 1 / ( 1 - x )² ............(Ans )
