Sum  to  n    terms    


Dont post the full solution,Maybe Hints(Like the method )


Should we use factorial things in here???

The biggest hint to theis problem tht the question can be done using Vn method. Search it. Try it

Do u know the Vn method ??

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

hi swapnil

this question cannot be done by VN method!!!!

see and guess why this question is not done by VN method

@ 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) +] ------- (Required Answer).

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


S = + ar+1ar+2ar+3ar+4....a2r +    ..............  +


Tn =


Vn =

(Take an extra Last Term in Vn)


Vn-1 =


Vn - Vn-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]


Now put n=1,2,3,....,n and add.


T= 1/[(r+1)d] * [V1 - V0]

T= 1/[(r+1)d] * [V2 - V1]

T= 1/[(r+1)d] * [V3 - V2]





T= 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,

Thanks for ur answer and ur answer is correct...


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)

4 years ago



Enna idhu Sir lam... :P

Seri adhe vidu.


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.

IF A is a skew syemmetric matrix, then B=(I-A)(I+A) -1 is (here I is the identity matrix of the same order as A) 1)idempotent matrix 2)syemmetric matrix 3)orthogonal matrix 4)None
Lets take this is because A is skew symmetric Now lets do and (I-A)(I+A) = (I+A)(I-A) ….... try this, putting in the above equation we get B T B = I Hence orthogonal

this is because A T =-A in case of skew syemmetric matrix right so why the first line is that very good

what is the remainder when 45^17^17 is divided by 204
Ohh yes you can use 45.(2045)^144 . write 2025 as factor + remainder of 204. Then use binomial to get answer
Sourabh Singh 3 months ago
This is 45^289.Expand using binomial and you will get the answer like 45.45^288 45.1225^144 Use binomial expansion now
