Does (1-a)^m has a limit ?

Hi to all,

just to refresh my old calculus course: given the infinite sum of
(1-a)^m (a<1), what can I say about ? More precisely:

For a<1 the does the sum converges ?

What is the limit (as a function of a, of course) ?

The condition a<1 is necessary or sufficient (or both) for the
convergence ?

Any suggestion will be very appreciated

Best regards
