First have a closer look at the roots of the denominator:
Limit[(3*2^n - 3*2^(1 + n)*n + 2*3^n*n)/(6^n*(2 - 3*n + n^2)), n -> #1]& /@ {1, 2}
--> {1 + Log[2] - Log[3], -(1/6) + Log[3/2]}
add these:
Simplify[Plus @@ %]
--> 5/6
sum the rest:
Sum[(3*2^n - 3*2^(1 + n)*n + 2*3^n*n)/(6^n*(2 - 3*n + n^2)), {n, 3, Infinity}]
--> 1/6
add everyting:
[ left as exercise ;-), so you can do a small part of your homework by yourself ]
