Do you see that the numbers are increasing by 8?

i would do it the old school way and keep subtracting 12 until you get 38 terms, then add lol

\[\sum_{i=0}^{37}(137+8i)=137+8(0)+\sum_{i=1}^{37}(137+8i)\] Now use \[\sum_{i=1}^{n}i=\frac{n(n+1)}{2} \text{ and } \sum_{i=1}^{n}c=cn\]

Whenever you need to find the sum of an arithmetic series use this formula: \[ \frac n 2 \left( 2a+ (n-1) \right)\times d) \tag{1}\] a= first term n= number of terms d= common difference Here, \(n= 38, a = 137 \) and \( d = -12\). Substituting these in \((1)\), and assuming my algebra is right you answer should be \(-3230 \)
