The sum of series $$\frac{5}{2!\cdot 3}+\frac{5\cdot 7}{3!\cdot 3^3}+\frac{5\cdot 7\cdot 9}{4!\cdot 3^3}+\cdots \cdots \infty$$

should the denominator of the 2nd term be $3! \cdot 3^2$ ? Otherwise I don't see the pattern.

The sum can be written as $\displaystyle \sum_{n=2}^{\infty} \frac{\prod_{n=2}^{\infty} (1+2n) }{3^{n1} n! }$ . To compute it seems complicated.

The sum should be written as $\displaystyle \sum_{n=2}^\infty \frac{\displaystyle \prod_{k=2}^n (2k + 1)}{3^{n1}n!}$, which evaluates to 3√3  2 according to WA.
