Suppose

det$$\left| {\matrix{ {\sum\limits_{k = 0}^n k } & {\sum\limits_{k = 0}^n {{}^n{C_k}{k^2}} } \cr {\sum\limits_{k = 0}^n {{}^n{C_k}.k} } & {\sum\limits_{k = 0}^n {{}^n{C_k}{3^k}} } \cr } } \right| = 0$$

holds for some positive integer n. Then $$\sum\limits_{k = 0}^n {{{{}^n{C_k}} \over {k + 1}}}$$ equals ..............
