How can I find the sum of this infinite series?

I've been trying for a long time to find the sum of this. Would be nice if someone could help me!

$$\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{4+2^n}{4^{n+2}} =\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{4}{4^{n+2}}+\sum_{n=0}^{ \infty} \frac{2^n}{4^{n+2}} \\ \phantom{\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{4+2^n}{4^{n+2}} } = \frac{1}{4}\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{4^{n}}+ \frac{1}{16} \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{1}{2^{n}}$$
