Hello, I am starting with series and I have an example from the book but I cannot figure out what they did with the exponents. Can anyone help? I want to know how to go from the first expression to the second one. $\displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{4^{n}}{3^{n1}}=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}4(\frac{4}{3})^{n1}$ Thanks

Hello Admins, I am so sorry. I posted this here. I was looking for the LaTex and I posted without noticing I was in the incorrect section. Can you move it? Thanks

$$4^n = 4 \times 4^{n1}$$so$$\frac{4^n}{3^{n1}} = 4\times \frac{4^{n1}}{3^{n1}} = 4 \left( \frac43 \right)^{n1}$$
