    1) Find what kind of series it is (arithmetic or geometric) 2) Find the exponent or ratio 3) Find the upper bounds based on step 2. I saw that each term is the square of n+1, to 1024 is the square of the last nth term, making the last n 32 4) Put it into sum notation

    actually, this might not be the "general form"

    I don't know general form, but it should be easy since you know the sum notation now
