# Find the sum of the series :1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9

Sum of an arithmetic series can be easily done by the calculation of the summation of the nth term of the series.

## Answer: The sum of the series 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 is equal to 45.

Let us go through the explanation to understand better.

**Explanation:**

Given series: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9

Since every position of the series is equal to the term of that series,

T_{n} = n

Sum of the series = ∑ T_{n }= ∑ n

∑ n = n × (n + 1)/2

∑ n = 9 × (9 + 1)/2 (Since total number of terms = n = 9)

∑ n = 9 × 10/2

∑ n = 9 × 5

∑ n = 45
