Sum

Find the sum of the first 10 multiples of 6.

Solution

First 10 multiples of 6 are 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60.

This forms an AP with first term a = 6 and common difference, d = 6.

"S"_"n" = "n"/2[2"a" +("n"-1)"d"]

⇒ "S"_10 = 10/2 [2xx6+(10-1)6]

⇒ S10 = 5[12+54]

⇒ S10 = 5 × 66 =330

Thus, sum of first 10 multiples of 6 is 330.
