2[3^{k+1}(k-1)] - 3^{k+1}(k-2)

2\times3^{k+1}(k-1) - 3^{k+1}(k-20)

3^{k+1}(2(k-1)-(k-2))

    Some practise. You should look at what you want in the final answer and try to work towards that. I usually do it separately, find 6U_{n+1} and simplify and then find 9U_{n} and simplify and then subtract them after the simplification, it was the technique I saw on MadAsMaths(By TeeEm) and it made it so much simpler for me.
