    Find the general form, then use that to find the last term. then use the sum of an arithmetic sequence equation to find the sum.\[s = n/2 * (n1 + n32)\]

    well the sum is simply \[S_{n} = \frac{n}{2}[2a + (n -1)d]\] a = 1st term, n = number of terms and d = common difference in your question you know n = 32, the 1st term is 134 find the common difference. ..d and then substitute and evaluate. the value of d will be negative

    S = [134 - (0)(12)] + [134 - (1)(12)] + [134 - (2)(12)] + . . . + [134 - (31)(12)] S = (134)(32) - (12)(1 + 2 + 3 + . . . + 31) S = (134)(32) - (12)(31)(32)/2
