# Find Nth term of the series 5, 13, 25, 41, 61…

Given a number N. The task is to write a program to find the Nth term in the below series:

5, 13, 25, 41, 61...

**Examples:**

Input :3Output :25 For N = 3 Nth term = 3*3 + (3+1)*(3+1) = 25Input :5Output :61

On observing carefully, the Nth term of the given series can be generalised as:

Nth term = N^{2}+ (N+1)^{2}

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// CPP program to find N-th term of the series: ` `// 5, 13, 25, 41, 61... ` `#include <iostream> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// calculate Nth term of series ` `int` `nthTerm(` `int` `N) ` `{ ` ` ` `return` `N * N + (N + 1) * (N + 1); ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver Function ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `N = 3; ` ` ` ` ` `cout << nthTerm(N); ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
