If a is 1st term and d is common difference, sum of n terms = (n/2) (2a + (n-1)d) = (2an-nd) + n2d


 


comparing this with cn2 we get : 2an-nd = 0  and  d = c    =>    a = c/2,  d = c


 


sum of squares of n terms = \sum_{r=1}^{n}(a+(n-1)d)^{2}


 


=\sum_{r=1}^{n}\left( \frac{c}{2}+(n-1)c\right)^{2}


 


=\sum_{r=1}^{n}c^{2}\left( n^{2}-n+\frac{1}{4}\right)


 


=c^{2}\left( \sum_{r=1}^{n}n^{2}-\sum_{r=1}^{n}n+\sum_{r=1}^{n}\frac{1}{4}\right)


 


=c^{2}\left(\frac{n(n+1)(2n+1)}{6}-\frac{n(n+1)}{2}+\frac{n}{4}\right)


 


=\frac{c^{2}n(4n^{2}-1)}{12}
