# Find the sum of the following series to n terms:$$1.2.4+2.3.7+3.4.10+...$$

Solution

## Let $$T_n$$ be the terms of the given series. Then$$T_n (n^{th}\ term\ of\ 1,2,3...)\times (n^{th}\ term\ of\ 2,3,4...)\times (n^{th}\ term\ of\ 2,3,4...)$$$$=[1+(n-1)\times 1].[2+(n-1)\times 1] [4+(n-1)\times 3]$$$$=[1+n-1][2+n-1][4+3n-3]$$$$=n (n+1)(3n+1)$$$$=3n^3+n^2 +3n^2+n$$$$=3n^3+4n^2 +n$$$$T_n =3n^3+4n^2+n$$Let $$S_n$$ denoted sum of $$n$$ terms of the given series $$S_n =\displaystyle \sum _{n=1}^{n} T_n =\displaystyle \sum _{n=1}^{n}n^2 +\displaystyle \sum _{n=1}^{n}n$$$$=\dfrac{3}{1} \left [\dfrac {n(n+1)}{2}\right]^2 +4\left [\dfrac {n(n+1) (2n+1)}{6}\right]+\dfrac {n(n+1)}{2}$$$$=\dfrac {3}{4}[n(n+1)]^2+\dfrac {2n (n+1) (2n+1)}{3}+\dfrac {n(n+1)}{2}$$$$=\dfrac {n}{12}(n+1)[9n^2 +9n+16n+8+6]$$$$S_n =\dfrac {n}{12}(n+1)[9n^2+25n+14]$$Mathematics
