SOLUTIONS: SEQUENCE & SERIES QUIZ

Summation of arithmetic sequence formula is used.

This is a geometric sequence with common ratio 10 i.e. 10/1=10, 100/10=10, 1000/100=10 and so on….

NOTE: Natural numbers are: 1, 2, 3, 4, …. and their sum up to n numbers is calculated using the given formula.

NOTE: Odd numbers are: 1, 3, 5, 7 …. and the sum for the first n odd numbers is calculated by n2. For example, the sum of the first 2 odd numbers is 22=4 (1+3=4), and the sum of the first 3 odd numbers is 32=9 (1+3+5=9).
