Find the sum of $n$ terms of the G,P, $x^2,x^4,x^6...........$ in terms of $x$

$\begin{array}{1 1} x^4 \large\frac{1-x^{2n}}{1-x^2} \\ x^2 \large\frac{1-x^{n}}{1-x^2} \\x^2 \large\frac{1-x^{2n}}{1+x^{2n}} \\ x^2 \large\frac{1-x^{2n}}{1-x^2}\end{array} $

  • Sum of $n$ terms of a G.P.$=S_n=a.\large\frac{1-r^n}{1-r}$ where $a=$ first term and $r$=common ratio.
Given G.P.$=x^2,x^4,x^6.........$
In this G.P. first term$=x^2$ and common ratio$=\large\frac{x^4}{x^2}$$=x^2$
We know that the sum of $n$ terms of a G.P.$=a.\large\frac{1-r^n}{1-r}$
