Find the sum of the series 1+11+111+1111+….. upto n terms

  • Last Updated : 24 Mar, 2021

Here we are going to find the sum of the series 1 + 11 + 111 + 1111 +…..upto N terms (where N is given).
Example : 
 

Input : 3
Output : 1 + 11 + 111 +....
Total sum is : 123

Input : 4
Output : 1 + 11 + 111 + 1111 +..... 
Total sum is : 1234

Input : 7
Output : 1 + 11 + 111 + 1111 + 11111 + 
         111111 + 1111111 +..... 
Total sum is : 1234567

 

Here we see that when value of N is 3, series last upto 1 + 11 + 111 i.e, three term and it’s sum is 123.
Program for finding sum of above series : 
 

C++




// C++ program to find the sum of
// the series 1+11+111+1111+....
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function for finding summation
int summation(int n)
{
    int sum = 0, j = 1;
    for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
        sum = sum + j;
 
        // Appending a 1 at the end
        j = (j * 10) + 1;
    }
 
    return sum;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int n = 5;
    cout << " " <<  summation(n);
    return 0;
}

Another method: Let given a series S = 1 + 11 + 111 + 1111 + . . . + upto nth term. Using formula to find sum of series.
 



\\ S = 1 + 11 + 111 + 1111 + . . . + upto \ n \ term \\ \\ S = \left ( \frac{1}{9} \right )*\left ( 9 + 99 + 999 + 9999 + . . . + upto \ n \ term \right ) \\ \\ S = \left ( \frac{1}{9} \right ) * \left ( \left (10 ^{1} - 1\right ) + \left (10 ^{2} -1 \right ) +\left (10 ^{3} -1 \right ) + \left (10 ^{4} -1 \right ) + . . . + \left (10 ^{n} -1 \right ) \right ) \\ \\ S = \left ( \frac{1}{9} \right ) *\left (10 ^{1} + 10 ^{2} + 10 ^{3} + 10 ^{4} + . . . + 10 ^{n} - n\right ) \\ \\ S = \left ( \frac{1}{9} \right ) * \left ( \frac{10 * (10^{n} - 1)}{10 - 1} - n \right ) \\ \\ S = \frac{10^{n+1} - 10 - 9n}{81}
