        Topic Notes
        An arithmetic series is the sum of an arithmetic sequence. In this lesson, we will learn how to solve problems using the arithmetic series formula.
        • the sum of nn terms of an arithmetic series:
        sn{s_n} = n2[2t1+(n1)d]\frac{n}{2}[2{t_1} + (n - 1)d]
        = n2[t1+tn]\frac{n}{2}[{t_1} + {t_n}]
