Detailed Solution for Test: Previous Year Questions - Sequences And Series- 2 - Question 13

Sn = cn2
S(n−1) = c(n−1)2
= cn2+c−2cn
Tn = 2cn − c
Tn2 = (2cn−c)2
= 4c2n2 + c2 − 4c2 n
Required sum = ∑Tn2 = 4c2 ∑n2 +nc2 −4c2 ∑n
{4c2n(n+1)(2n+1)}/6 + nc2−2c2n(n+1)
= (2c2n(n+1)(2n+1)+3nc2−6c2n(n+1))/3

Infinite Sum of GP S = a/(1−r) = (k−1)/[k!(1−1/k)] = 1/(k−1)!
​(100)2/100! + ∑k=(1 to 100)|(k2−3k+1)Sk|
(100)2/100! + ∑k=(1 to 100) [(k-1)^2 k[(1/(k-1)!]
(100)2/100! + ∑k=(2 to 100)|[(k-1)/(k-2)! - k/(k-1)!|
(100)2/100! 2/1! - 1/0 + 2/1! - 3/2! + 3/2! +.....+ 99/98! - 100/99!
