**Slot -2 – Quantitative Aptitude – Modern Maths – Sequence and Series – The value of the sum 7 x 11 **

**The value of the sum 7 x 11 + 11 x 15 + 15 x 19 + …+ 95 x 99 is?**

a) 80707

b) 80730

c) 80773

d) 80751

**Answer:** a) 80707

**Solution**: 7 x 11 + 11 x 15 + 15 x 19 + …+ 95 x 99

nth term of series = {4(n+1)-1}×{ 4 (n+1)+3}=16n^2+16+32n+8n+8-

3=16n^2+40n+21

Thus 7 x 11 + 11 x 15 + 15 x 19 + …+ 95 x 99 = ∑ Tn=∑ (16n^2+40n+15)

Required sum = ∑ Tn=∑ (16n^2+ 40n+15)=16 ×(n(n+1(2n+1))/6 + 40×n(n+1)/2 + 21n

Putting n= 23

Sum = 16×23×24×47/6+40×23×24/2+21×23

=69184+11040+483=80707

Correct option a) 80707
