# After Playing With Integrals!

$\displaystyle {\color{grey}{\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \sum_{i=0}^n \frac{(2n)!!(2i+1)!!}{(2i)!!(2n+1)!! } (-b)^{i+n} = \frac{1}{(1+b)^2}\Bigg(\frac{1}{2\sqrt{b}} \ln \Big(\frac{1+\sqrt{b}}{1-\sqrt{b}} \Big) + \frac{b}{1-b} \Bigg)}}$

Prove the above equality for $$0<b<1$$.

Note: I got this fact after manipulating some integrals (i.e. proved it indirectly). I wonder how brilliant members would solve it ! Share your thoughts and hints if you don't have the complete answer.
