# Find sum of N-th group of Natural Numbers

Given a series of natural numbers divided into groups as: (1, 2), (3, 4, 5, 6), (7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12), (13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)….. and so on. Given a number N, the task is to find the sum of the numbers in the N^{th} group.

**Examples:**

Input: N = 3Output: 57 Numbers in 3rd group are: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12Input: N = 10Output: 2010

The first group has **2** terms,

second group has **4** terms,

.

.

.

nth group has **2n** terms.

Now,

The last term of the **first group** is 2 = 1 × (1 + 1)

The last term of the **second group** is 6 = 2 × (2 + 1)

The last term of the **third group** is 12 = 3 × (3 + 1)

The last term of the **fourth group** is 20 = 4 × (4 + 1)

.

.

.

The last term of the **nth group = n(n + 1)**.

Therefore, the sum of the numbers in the **nth group** is:

= sum of all the numbers upto

nth group– sum of all the numbers upto(n – 1)th group= [1 + 2 +……..+ n(n + 1)] – [1 + 2 +……..+ (n – 1 )((n – 1) + 1)]
