Solving a Recurrence Relation

Solve the following recurrence relation: a(n) = a(n-1) + 3(n-1), a(0) = 1 I know this should not be a difficult problem, but my main problem is in solving the problem when the coefficient of the a(n-1) term is 1. Also, when a summation is in the solution, I do not understand how to convert from a summation to a C(n,k)
