## EXERCISE 9.4

#### Question 1:

Find the sum to n terms of the series 1 × 2 + 2 × 3 + 3 × 4 + 4 × 5 + …

The given series is 1 × 2 + 2 × 3 + 3 × 4 + 4 × 5 + …

nth term, an = n ( n + 1) #### Question 2:

Find the sum to n terms of the series 1 × 2 × 3 + 2 × 3 × 4 + 3 × 4 × 5 + …

The given series is 1 × 2 × 3 + 2 × 3 × 4 + 3 × 4 × 5 + …

nth term, an = n ( n + 1) ( n + 2)

= (n2 + n) (n + 2)

= n+ 3n+ 2n #### Question 3:

Find the sum to n terms of the series 3 × 12 + 5 × 22 + 7 × 32 + …

The given series is 3 ×12 + 5 × 22 + 7 × 32 + …

nth term, an = ( 2n + 1) n2 = 2n3 + n2 #### Question 3:

Find the sum to n terms of each of the series in Exercises 1 to 7.

3 × 12 + 5 × 22 + 7 × 32 + …

The given series is 3 ×12 + 5 × 22 + 7 × 32 + …

nth term, an = ( 2n + 1) n2 = 2n3 + n2 #### Question 4:

Find the sum to n terms of the series The given series is nth term, an =   Adding the above terms column wise, we obtain #### Question 5:

Find the sum to n terms of the series The given series is 52 + 62 + 72 + … + 202

nth term, an = ( n + 4)2 = n2 + 8n + 16 16th term is (16 + 4)2 = 2022 #### Question 6:

Find the sum to n terms of the series 3 × 8 + 6 × 11 + 9 × 14 +…

The given series is 3 × 8 + 6 × 11 + 9 × 14 + …

a= (nth term of 3, 6, 9 …) × (nth term of 8, 11, 14, …)

= (3n) (3n + 5)

= 9n2 + 15n #### Question 7:

Find the sum to n terms of the series 12 + (12 + 22) + (12 + 22 + 32) + …

The given series is 12 + (12 + 22) + (12 + 2+ 32 ) + …

an = (12 + 22 + 32 +…….+ n2)

= nn+12n+16=n2n2+3n+16=2n3+3n2+n6=13n3+12n2+16n #### Question 8:

Find the sum to n terms of the series whose nth term is given by n (n + 1) (n + 4).

an = n (n + 1) (n + 4) = n(n+ 5n + 4) = n3 + 5n2 + 4n #### Question 9:

Find the sum to n terms of the series whose nth terms is given by n2 + 2n

an = n2 + 2n Consider The above series 2, 22, 23, … is a G.P. with both the first term and common ratio equal to 2. Therefore, from (1) and (2), we obtain #### Question 10:

Find the sum to n terms of the series whose nth terms is given by (2n – 1)2
