We need the specific formula. Find d = 7 – 4 = 3. Therefore the specific formula is an = 3(n – 1) + 4 an = 3n + 1.

Sum of Arithmetic Sequences

If an = 67 = 3n + 1, Given that a1, a2 , a3 , …an an arithmetic sequence, then

a1+ a2 + a3 + … + an = n

an a1 + 2( )= n

Example E. a. Given the arithmetic sequence a1= 4, 7, 10, … , and an = 67. What is n?

We need the specific formula. Find d = 7 – 4 = 3. Therefore the specific formula is an = 3(n – 1) + 4 an = 3n + 1.

Sum of Arithmetic Sequences

If an = 67 = 3n + 1, then 66 = 3n Given that a1, a2 , a3 , …an an arithmetic sequence, then

a1+ a2 + a3 + … + an = n

an a1 + 2( )= n

Example E. a. Given the arithmetic sequence a1= 4, 7, 10, … , and an = 67. What is n?

We need the specific formula. Find d = 7 – 4 = 3. Therefore the specific formula is an = 3(n – 1) + 4 an = 3n + 1.

Sum of Arithmetic Sequences

If an = 67 = 3n + 1, then 66 = 3n or 22 = n b. Find the sum 4 + 7 + 10 +…+ 67
