a=2/3^7 + 2/3^8 + 2/3^9 + 2/3^9

a= 2/3^7 *(1+1/3+1/9+2/9)

a=2/3^7 * (15/9)

a= 30/3^9

a= 10/3^8

a= $$\frac{2}{3^7}$$+$$\frac{2}{3^8}$$+$$\frac{2}{3^9}$$+$$\frac{2^2}{3^9}$$

= $$\frac{2}{3^7}$$[1+$$\frac{1}{3}$$+$$\frac{1}{9}$$+$$\frac{2}{9}$$]

= $$\frac{2}{3^7}$$*[$$\frac{15}{9}$$]

= $$\frac{30}{3^9}$$

= $$\frac{10}{3^8}$$
