3
Aim: Summation Notation Course: Alg. 2 & Trig. Definition of Summation Notation sigma sum of terms The sum of the first n terms of a sequence is represented by When n is a specific number, the sum of a sequence is called a finite series. where i is the index of summation, n is the upper limit of summation, and 1 is the lower limit of summation.

4
Aim: Summation Notation Course: Alg. 2 & Trig. Summation Notation where i is the index of summation n is the upper limit of summation 0 is the lower limit of summation The first term of the summation is formed by substituting the lower limit for the index into the general term. Each succeeding term of the summation is formed using successive integral values of the index, until the upper limit is reached.

Aim: Summation Notation Course: Alg. 2 & Trig. In an arithmetic series, if a 1 is the first term, n is the number of terms, a n is the n th term, and d is the common difference, then S n the sum of the arithmetic series, is given by the formulas: The Sum of an Arithmetic Sequence: Series or

Aim: Summation Notation Course: Alg. 2 & Trig. The n th Term of an Arithmetic Sequence The n th term of an arithmetic sequence has the form a n = dn + c where d is the common difference between consecutive terms of the sequence and c = a 1 – d An alternative form of the nth term is a n = a 1 + (n – 1)d Summation and Arithmetic Series
