...III. The last term of any arithmetical series is equal to the sum or difference of the first term, and the product of the common difference by the number of terms less , one ; according as the series is increasing or decreasing.

The last term of any increasing arithmetical series is equal to the first term plus the product of the common difference by the number of terms less one ; and if the series be decreasing, it will he equal to the first term minus that product.

...Or, the sum of any increasing arithmetical series may be found, without considering the last term, by adding the product of the common difference by the number of terms less one to twice the first term, and then multiplying the result by half the number of terms. And, if the series... ## An Introduction to Algebra: With Notes and Observations : Designed for the ...
