## How to Find Summation?

To write the sum of more terms, say n terms, of a sequence {a_{n}}, we use the summation notation instead of writing the whole sum manually by:

**a1 + a2 +... + an = \(\sum_{i=1}^{n} a_{i}\)**

**Solved Example:**

Find \(\sum_{n=1}^{5} n\)

**Solution:**

Find sum up to 5 terms for a given function 'n'

= 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5

= 15

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the sum of the series for the following:

- \(\sum_{n=1}^{4} n^2\)
- \(\sum_{n=1}^{7} (n + 1)^2\)
