Re: PS (Sequence) [#permalink] New post 11 Mar 2008, 10:02
The best way to solve this is to use the formulae for sum of a series.which is
Sum of n terms= n/2[2a + (n-1)d]
where a= first term of series which is 1 here
n = no of terms which is n in first case and 2n in second case
d= difference between two terms
Hence
Sum of n terms = n/2[2+2n-1]=n/2[n+1]
Sum of 2n terms = 2n/2[2+2n-1]=n[2n+1]
Difference of both = n(3n+1)/2
