An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles


Let's rewrite the n'th term of the sequence as,





Now let's carry out partial fraction decomposition,


Multiply the above equation by LCD,




Equating the coefficients of the like terms,

`3A+3B=0`    -----------------(1)

`-A+2B=1`  ------------------(2)

From equation 1,



Substitute A in equation 2,








Now we can write down the n'th partial sum of the series as:
