@IrishBoy123 mind helping?

for first n terms you have \[\large \Sigma_{k=0}^{n-1} \ a \ r^k = a \frac{1-r^n}{1-r}\]

so you can calculate 2 summations, each starting at zero and ending somewhere that leaves you with the interval you want to sum over a bit like S(8 to 10) = S(10) - S(7)

so methodically plug into that formula and see where you go

ok thank you

ouch, you are using k and m in your problem so i have removed them to make it cleaner: \[\large \Sigma_{i=0}^{n-1} \ a \ r^i = a \frac{1-r^n}{1-r}\]
