Recall the sum of a geometric series is given by

#a/(1 - r)#

We can rewrite our sequence as

#g(x) = 2/(1 - 1/3x)#

#g(x) = (2/3)/(1 - 1/3x)#

Now we can match up coefficients to get

#a = 2/3# and#r = 1/3#

Thus the power series is

#g(x) = 2/3(1/3x)^n#

The interval of convergence will be

Hopefully this helps!
