```										At Swapnil Saxena : Thanks for the hint.How do u know these kinda of methods?

V-n method

V-n method is used to solve the series summation problem in the fom of :

1> 1/(a1*a2)  +  1/(a2*a3)  +  1/(a3*a4)  +........ upto n terms

2>(a1*a2)  + (a2*a3)  +  (a3*a4)  +.............upto n terms

where a1,a2,a3 ..... are in AP with certain common difference

```										@ Samarth : No Idea??? Why... Tell me. Is there is something wrong. This is wht u told me.
@ Sathyaram : Good Friendship, attempts, courage, and hard labour always pays...
@ Jit: Sathyaram is right... but I wanna further extend . Not just the series like tht but like
a1a2a3a4a5+ a2a3a4a5a6 +a3a4a5a6a7 .... or 1/a1a2a3a4a5+ 1/a2a3a4a5a6 + 1/a3a4a5a6a7 ....  like difficulties can be solved by this method

```										Hi Guys,

This question can definitely be solved using the Vn method.
S = Σ(4r-1)(4r+3)(4r+7)(4r+11), r=1,2,3,....n.
So Tr = (4r-1)(4r+3)(4r+7)(4r+11)
and let Vr = (4r-5)(4r-1)(4r+3)(4r+7)(4r+11)
hence, Vr+1 = (4r-1)(4r+3)(4r+7)(4r+11)(4r+15)

So Vr+1 - Vr = 20xTr.
Hence Σ(Vr+1 - Vr) = 20*S
Hence S = (1/20)*[Vn+1 - V1] = (1/20)*[(4n-1)(4n+3)(4n+7)(4n+11)(4n+15) + 3.7.11.15] ------- (Required Answer).

Regards,

```										Agree with swapnil. Lemme try to generalize it for u.

S = a1a2a3a4a5....ar + ar+1ar+2ar+3ar+4....a2r +    ..............  + an-r+1an-r+2an-r+3......an

Tn = an-r+1an-r+2an-r+3......an

Vn = anan+1an+2......an+r-1an+r
(Take an extra Last Term in Vn)

Vn-1 = an-1anan+1......an+r-2an+r-1

Vn - Vn-1 = anan+1an+2......an+r-1 [an+r - an-1 ] = Tn[an+r - an-1 ] = Tn [{a1 + (n+r-1)d} - {a1+ (n-2)d}] = Tn [(r+1)d]

or, Tn = 1/[(r+1)d] * [Vn - Vn-1]

T1 = 1/[(r+1)d] * [V1 - V0]
T2 = 1/[(r+1)d] * [V2 - V1]
T3 = 1/[(r+1)d] * [V3 - V2]
.
.
.
.
Tn = 1/[(r+1)d] * [Vn - Vn-1]
______________________________
S = 1/[(r+1)d] * [Vn - V0]

From here you can find the sum easily.

Similarly for the sum of reciprocals, Take one term less for Vn .

```										@ Ashwin Sir,

But, How could u assume that "let Vr = (4r-5)(4r-1)(4r+3)(4r+7)(4r+11)"?

And where did (4r-5) go in this equation? :
Vr+1 = (4r-1)(4r+3)(4r+7)(4r+11)(4r+15)
```

```										Dude,

Enna idhu Sir lam... :P

Vr is assumed based on the Tr.
In Vr we assume one more term in the start.

If Vr = (4r-5)(4r-1)(4r+3)(4r+7)(4r+11)
then replace r by r+1 in this to get Vr+1.
Hence you get Vr+1.
