the sum of n terms of A.G.P.

? [S_n = \sum_{k = 1}^n \left[a + (k - 1) d\right] r^{k - 1} = \frac{a - [a+(n - 1)d] r^n}{1 - r}+\frac{dr(1 - r^{n - 1})}{(1 - r)^2}.]? [S_n = \sum_{k = 1}^n \left[a + (k - 1) d\right] r^{k - 1} = \frac{a - [a+(n - 1)d] r^n}{1 - r}+\frac{dr(1 - r^{n - 1})}{(1 - r)^2}.]229-834_Ser.png

To derive it call the sum of series be Sn. Then multiply it by “r” of the G.P. and then subtract Sn with rSn

Take the LCM of the denominator and keep it outside of the series. Now from the nth term of the series, simplify and get the 2 GP’s in addition. Solve for the sum of the GP to get the final answer.
