These binomial expansions are infinite

The general series is :

 (1-x)-p =1+ px+ p(p+1)/2! x2 + p(p+1)(p+2)/3! x3 + ............ + p+r-1Cr xr + .............

for p=1   (1-x)-1 = 1+x+x2+x3+x4+ ......  +xn-1 + .....

          sum to n terms(u0,u1,u2,...un-1) is 1+1+1+...(n) terms  ,  so sum is n

for p=2   (1-x)-2 = 1+2x+3x2+4x3+5x4+ ......  +(n)xn-1 + .....

          sum to n terms(u0,u1,u2,...un-1) is 1+2+3+...+n  , so sum is n(n+1)/2

for p=3   (1-x)-2 = 1+3x+6x2+10x3+ ......  +(n+1)C(n-1)xn-1 +(n+2)C(n)xn .....

          sum to n terms(u0,u1,u2,...un-1) is 2C0+3C1+4C2+5C3+..........+ (n+1)C(n-1)     so sum is 

                                        i.e.,  = 1 +  Σ (n+1)C(n-1)

                                                =  1 + [( Σn2 + Σn) /2]

sum to n terms for p=3       = ( 2n3 + 3n2+ n +6)/6

The general term of the sequence can be written as a k = 1 – (3/4) k . This sum of the sequence can be found out using the well known formula for n-terms of a geometric progression.

I am not sure the question is correct. The series do not have any pattern if the third term of series is 35/7 instead of 37/5, it can be summed easily. Please confirm.

The orthocentre of a triangle formed by the pair of x+y+1=0lines 2(x^2)-xy-(y^y)+x+2y-1=0.
Differentiate the eqn. 2(x^2)-xy-(y^y)+x+2y-1=0. once w.r.t x and y separetly and get the relation in x and y eqns. then u have three eqns. for a triangle. apply the orthocentre formulae.
