Find the Nth term of the series 2 + 6 + 13 + 23 + . . .

Given an integer N. The task is to write a program to find the Nth term of the given series:

2 + 6 + 13 + 23 + …

Examples:



Input : N = 5
Output : 36

Input : N = 10
Output : 146

Refer the article on How to find Nth term of series to know idea behind finding Nth term of any given series.

The generalized N-th term of given series is:
 t_{n} = \frac{3n^{2}-n+2}{2}

Below is the implementation of above approach:

int Nth_Term(int n)

return (3 * pow(n, 2) - n + 2) / (2);
  
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
