    \[\sum_{k=1}^6{3(-2)^k-1}\] The -1 is up with the k. Find the indicated sum of the geometric series.

    \[\sum_{k=1}^6{3(-2)^{k-1}}=3\sum_{k=1}^6{(-2)^{k-1}}\] \[=3(1-2+4-8+16-32)\]

    \[\sum_{k=1}^6-3(2)^{k-1}=-3\sum_{k=1}^6(2)^{k-1}\]

    \[-3\sum_{k=1}^6(2)^{k-1}=-3(1+2+4+8+16+32)=-3(63)\] if my arithmetic is correct
