The nth term for all the cubes is 22n-1.

The 10th number will be worked out by 4 times 10 minus 1 which is 39.

    So ad an example I will take steep 5, which gives me : n = 55. I now insert it into the formula: St = 6n + 44 Therefore: St: 6 x 55+44= 374 St: 55+56+57+65+66+75= 374 So by using the formula you end up with the same result like adding up the squares.

    they all equal the same answer but the answer is higher. This means that it probably can use the same sort of formula. N N+1 N+2 N+10 N+11 N+12 N+20 N+21 N+22 I shall try to use the formula: (N+2)x(N+20)-N(N+22)= 40 (N2+20N+2N+40)-(N2+22N)= 40 N2+22N+40-N2-22N= 40 Therefore 40 = 40 Lorenzo
