@katiebugg Sum of n terms is given 1356 First term \(a_1=1\) and common difference=5 we know that sum to n terms is given as \[S_n=\frac{n}{2}(a_1+a_n)\] \(a_n\) is the last term Do you get till this?

we know \(a_n\) is given as \[a_n=a_1+(n1)d\] d=common difference n=no. of terms so sum will become \[S_n=\frac n2 (a_1+a_1+(n1)d)\] now pluigin the numbers here and post what do you get, will you?
