    the derivative is \[ \frac{n x^{1+n}}{-1+x}+\frac{2 x \left(-1+x^n\right)}{-1+x}-\frac{x^2 \left(-1+x^n\right)}{(-1+x)^2} \]

    We could find the sum of this first and then apply L'Hospital's \[2x+3x^2+....(n+1)x^n\]

    looks like we could use this formula directly http://planetmath.org/ArithmeticGeometricSeries.html

    \[S=2x+3x^2+...(n+1)x^n\] \[xS=2x^2+3x^3....(n+1)x^{n+1}\] \[(1-x)S=2x+\underline{x^2+x^3+x^4....+x^n}-(n+1)x^{n+1}\] This is GP

    the sum would be http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=differentiate+%28x^2+%28x^n-1%29%2F%28x-1%29%29 that's you would get indeterminate form ... you can apply L'hopital rule after that

    you should be getting \[ \frac{1}{3} n \left(2+3 n+n^2\right) \] or since you know you get indeterminate form ... you could apply L'hopital rule from the start. that's way easier.

    this is equal to http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Sum [n%28n%2B1%29%2C+{n%2C+1%2C+n}]&dataset=&equal=Submit

    Apply L-hospital Rule...differentiate numerator and denominator with respect to variable which is x here ... |dw:1358023261199:dw| |dw:1358023336162:dw|
