write 4 new sequences and see if we can develop patterns or equations for them

the difference tiers of the first column produce an equation as: 1 + 24n + 16n(n1); for n=0,1,2,3,...

it looks like the second one can be constructed as: 4(1+8n+4n(n1))

we can also prolly expand these out and simplify them before crunching them further

the 4th column can be considered as: 16(1+3n+n(n1)) and the 3rd as: (9+40n+16n(n2))

by adding that all together we get: 1 + 24n + 16n(n1)4(1+8n+4n(n1)) (9+40n+16n(n2))+16(1+3n+n(n1)) which the wolf says simplifies to 16n+4 so the question is: what is the summation of n=0 to 2010 of: 16n+4?

\[\sum_{a}^{b}(16n+4)\] \[\sum_{a}^{b}16n+\sum_{a}^{b}4\] \[16\sum_{a}^{b}n+4\sum_{a}^{b}\] \[16\frac{k(k+1)}{2}+4k\] where k is the number of elements

how did you get the equation

Here's a different approach. Observe that the nth and the (n+1)th square differ by 2n + 1, as (n+1)^2  n^2 = 2n + 1. For example 4 and 9 difference by 2x2 + 1 = 5 9 and 16 by 2x3 + 1 = 7 etc. Now, looking at the sequence you have, let's look at each group of four and write down an equation for it, starting with 4 9 16 25 4 and 16 differ by and add up to (2n + 1) + (2n + 3) = 4n + 4,where n = 2 9 and 25 differ by and add up to (2(n+1) + 1) + (2(n+1) + 3) = 4n + 8 (n = 2) Hence 4  9 + 16 + 25 = 8n + 12 = 28 (n = 2) Now take this term 8n + 12 and generalize as needed for your problem.
