```										Hello Student
$\\g_1,g_2,g_3,g_4,g_5,g_6.......g_\infty \\g_1+g_2=15 \\g_1=3(\sum_{1}^{\infty}g-g_1)=3(sum_\infty-g_1) \\=3({g_1 \over 1-r}-g_1)=3({rg_1 \over 1-r}) \\=>3({r \over 1-r})=1 \\=>3r=1-r \\=>r={1 \over 4} \\g_1+g_2=15 \\=>g_1(1+r)=15 \\=>g_1{ 5 \over 4}=15 \\=>g_1=12 \\=>\sum g={a \over 1-r}={12 \over {3\over 4}}=16$
