summation of five times negative three to the power of the quantity n plus one from n equals zero to infinity

help me please and show work and explanatio
As we can see -15 = 5 * (-3); 45 = - 15 * (-3) and so on. This means that a_n = -3 * a_(n-1). The first term in our series is 5 so we obtain
5 - 15 + 45 - 135 + ... =&nbsp;summation from n equals zero to infinity&nbsp;of 5 * (-3)^n. (the second answer)
