Hey Tanush,
If you aren't sure where to start because you're not familiar with how to write MATLAB code, I suggest you start with the MATLAB Onramp tutorial (https://www.mathworks.com/support/learn-with-matlab-tutorials.html) to quickly learn the essentials of MATLAB.
If you aren't sure where to start because you're not familiar with the math you'll need to solve the problem, in which case I recommend asking your professor and/or teaching assistant for help.
Since this seems like a homework assignment, if you can provide the code you've written to solve the problem and ask a specific question about where you're facing difficulty, we may be able to provide some guidance
Hope this helps!

Example showing a different series (because you are doing homework)
syms x n
symsum((-x)^n, n, 1, 50)
