    Lemme double check what exactly closed form is and I may be able to assist.

    Dang it... it appears as though closed form deals with diff eq (according to a quick google). I am only at Cal 2, so I think I'm going to have to sit this one out :/

    \[(2+\frac{2k}{n})(2+\frac{2k}{n})=4+\frac{8k}{n}+\frac{4k^2}{n^2}\]

    now break it up in to three summations \[\sum_{k=1}^n4=4n\] is the first one

    \[\sum_{k=1}^n\frac{8k}{n}=\frac{8}{n}\sum_{k=1}^nk\] for the second do you know how to add \[\sum_{k=1}^nk\]?

    notice that \(n\) is fixed so it comes out of the summation

    the formula for \[\sum_{k=1}^nk=1+2+3+...+n=\frac{n(n+1)}{2}\]

    • 2 years ago
  18. satellite73 Group Title

    so the second term gives \[\frac{8}{n}\sum_{k=1}^nk=\frac{8}{n}\frac{n(n+1)}{2}=4(n+1)\]

    • 2 years ago
  19. satellite73 Group Title

    the last one is \[\sum_{k=1}^n\frac{4k^2}{n^2}\] and as in the previous case the \(\frac{4}{n^2}\) comes out front to give you \[\frac{8}{n^2}\sum_{k=1}^nk^2\] so what you need for this one is the formula for \[\sum_{k=1}^nk^2\] which i am going to guess you do not know, but it is probably in your book

    so you get for the last term \[\frac{4}{n^2}\frac{n(n+1)(2n+1)}{6}\] oops you were off by a little

    should be \(2n+1\) in the numerator, not \(n+2\)

    but one answer is \[4n+4n+1+\frac{4}{n^2}\frac{n(n+1)(2n+1)}{6}\]
