Calculus

The question is, if f(x) is equal to the series from n to infinity of a sub n times (x-7)^n for all n, find a formula for a sub 10. (I apologize for typing it out in the way that I did, but it was the only way I could.

I don't quite understand what is being asked here. I tried writing an equation where the series is equal to (a sub n)/(1-r), but that didn't seem to work. Could someone explain to me what I am supposed to do here?

    I read from my textbook: If S is the infinite series 1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + ... Then Sx = x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + ... = S - 1 So, S = 1/(1-x) I follow what that logic, but it still doesn't make sense. The way I see it, if you plug any
