Your first equation divided by your second equation = the "show that" equation.

your method is neat but I don't see what you've done. I see that you've put the first equation equal to something else but please could you explain where the 'something else bit' has come from

He's literally done what I said.

Equation 1 = a(1-r^3)/(1-r)
Equation 2 = a/(1-r)
Equation 3 = (1-r^3)

Equation 1 / Equation 2 = Equation 3

So Equation 1 = Equation 2 x Equation 3 <- this is what he wrote
