Sum of 2 power series: Given: f(x)=\sum_{n=3}^{\infty}\frac{ 2^{n} }{ n! }\left( x-1 \right)^{n-2} and g(x)=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{ n ^{2} }{ 2^{n} }\left( x-1 \right)^{n-1} Find: f(x)+g(x)=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}a _{n}\left( x-1 \right)^{n}

    so \[f(x)=\sum_{n=3}^{\infty}\frac{ 2^{n} }{ n! }\left( x-1 \right)^{n-2}\] and \[g(x)=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{ n ^{2} }{ 2^{n} }\left( x-1 \right)^{n-1}\]

    \[\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{ 2^{n+1} }{ (n+1)! }\left( x-1 \right)^{n}+\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{(n+1)^{2} }{ 2^{n+1} }\left( x-1 \right)^{n}\]

    cinar, I thought something similar, but I have to force the solution to have the lower limit n=0

    \[-1+\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{ 2^{n+1} }{ (n+1)! }\frac{(n+1)^{2} }{ 2^{n+1} }(x-1)^n\]

    this should be 2 sorry \[-2+\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{ 2^{n+1} }{ (n+1)! }\frac{(n+1)^{2} }{ 2^{n+1} }(x-1)^n\]
