An arithmetico-geometric series is the sum of consecutive terms in an arithmetico-geometric sequence defined as: , where and are the th terms of arithmetic and geometric sequences, respectively.

## Finite Sum

The sum of the first n terms of an arithmetico-geometric sequence is , where is the common difference of and is the common ratio of . Or, , where is the sum of the first terms of .

**Proof:**

Let represent the sum of the first n terms.

## Infinite Sum

The sum of an infinite arithmetico-geometric sequence is , where is the common difference of and is the common difference of (|r|<1). Or, , where is the infinite sum of the .
