Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find the general form, then use that to find the last term. then use the sum of an arithmetic sequence equation to find the sum.\[s = n/2 * (n1 + n32)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 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
