# $\sum\limits_{n=4}^{\infty } \frac{2^n + 8^n}{10^n} = ?$

im looking for hints on how to do: $\sum\limits_{n=4}^{n= \infty } \frac{2^n + 8^n}{10^n} = ?$

I thought this may have had something to do with geometric series but nothing obvious comes up

Hint: you can write $\sum\limits_{n=4}^{n= \infty } \frac{2^n + 8^n}{10^n} = \sum\limits_{n=4}^{n= \infty } \frac{2^n }{10^n} + \sum\limits_{n=4}^{n= \infty } \frac{8^n }{10^n}$ because the two series on the right hand side converge. And then you have two geometric series, which you can probably solve.
$$\sum\limits_{n=4}^{\infty } \frac{2^n + 8^n}{10^n} \\ = \sum\limits_{n=4}^{\infty }\left( \frac{1}{5^n}+\frac{4^n}{5^n}\right)\\=\frac{1}{1-\frac{1}{5}}-1-\frac{1}{5}-\frac{1}{25}-\frac{1}{125}+\frac{1}{1-\frac{4}{5}}-1-\frac{4}{5}-\frac{16}{25}-\frac{64}{125}\\=0.002+2.048\\=2.05$$
