Proof of tricky infinite series

Salutations all. This question involves proving infinite series with differentiation, but I'm posting here because it's a proof question and so a harder question than just standard calculus which doesn't usually have proofs.

I just have one issue with this question. I've been scratching my head out on how the solution got, deduced, or inferred the expression in the red box. Where on earth does it come from?

In part (i), we proved



But how on earth can you get a general expression for from this? I'm missing something?!!!?!?
