Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got an answer of 91, but the answer choices for the problem don't include that as an answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2since you only have 5 terms, might as well just add them up... 4^2 + 5^2 + 6^2 + 7^2 + 8^2 + 9^2 = 16 + 25 + 36 + 49 + 64 + 81 = ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Wait a second, though  aren't there 6 terms (4,5,6,7,8,9)? Don't you include the the k= number AND the number above sigma?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you're add k^2 so starting from k=4 to k= 9, you add 4^2 + 5^2 + ... 9^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh, I see what you're saying. Why doesn't the formula work for this problem, though?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is correct.. but you'll have to subtract k=1 to k=3...dw:1339003974534:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, I'm a bit confused  what does that mean  "you'll have to subtract k=1 to k=3..." ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you can use that formula.... but isn't it easier to just write down those 6 terms and add them all up?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, I do think it's easier, but I wanted to figure out how I could use it with the formula. I don't believe my teacher taught us to subtract the k values  that's why I'm confused.
