## What is Summation?

Summation (aka sum) is the result obtained after adding the numbers of a sequence.

Summation notation (sigma notation) is used to represent a long sum in a single expression.

## Summation notation Example:

Solve:

** Solution**:

**Step 1:** Understand the operations:

Values = 3 to 7 = 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Equation = 2n - 3

**Step 2:** Put the values in the equation:

**For n = 3**

2(3) - 3 = 3

**For n = 4**

2(4) - 3 = 5

**For n = 5**

2(5) - 3 = 7

**For n = 6**

2(6) - 3 = 9

**For n = 7**

2(7) - 3 = 11

**Step 3:** Add all the results:

= 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11

= 35
