Draw a graph of the function


and show that the function takes only the values greater than $\frac{1}{2}$.

I know that the function $f(x)$ can be expressed as an infinte sum,


but I do not know how to deal with it.

I would be grateful for any help.

$f(x)$ is a geometric series. Therefore $f(x)$ equals:

$$\frac{1}{1 - -\frac{2^x}{3^x-2^x}}$$

For the geometric series to be defined, we must have $\left|-\frac{2^x}{3^x-2^x} \right| <1$. Find the $x$ that satisfy this condition, and note the shape of the graph using calculus. The conclusion follows.
