Given a series, the task is to find the sum of the below series up to n terms:
 

1, 8, 27, 64, …

Examples: 
 

Input: N = 2
Output: 9
9 = (2*(2+1)/2)^2

Input: N = 4
Output: 100
100 = (4*(4+1)/2)^2

 

Approach: We can solve this problem using the following formula: 
 

    Sn = 1 + 8 + 27 + 64 + .........up to n terms
    Sn = (n*(n+1)/2)^2

Below is the implementation of above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ program to find the sum of n terms
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to calculate the sum
int calculateSum(int n)
{
 
    // Return total sum
    return pow(n * (n + 1) / 2, 2);
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
 
    int n = 4;
    cout << calculateSum(n);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to find the sum of n terms
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
 
 
// Function to calculate the sum
static int calculateSum(int n)
{
 
    // Return total sum
    return (int)Math.pow(n * (n + 1) / 2, 2);
}
 
// Driver code
 
 
    public static void main (String[] args) {
        int n = 4;
    System.out.println( calculateSum(n));
 
    }
}

Python3




# Python3 program to find the
# sum of n terms
 
#Function to calculate the sum
def calculateSum(n):
     
    #return total sum
    return (n * (n + 1) / 2)**2
     
#Driver code
if __name__=='__main__':
    n = 4
    print(calculateSum(n))

C#




// C# program to find the sum of n terms
using System;
 
class GFG
{
 
// Function ot calculate the sum
static int calculateSum(int n)
{
 
    // Return total sum
    return (int)Math.Pow(n * (n + 1) / 2, 2);
}
 
// Driver code
public static void Main ()
{
    int n = 4;
    Console.WriteLine(calculateSum(n));
}
}

PHP




<?php
// PHP program to find
// the sum of n terms
     
// Function to calculate the sum
function calculateSum($n)
{
    // Return total sum
    return pow($n * ($n + 1) / 2 , 2);
}
     
// Driver code
$n = 4;
echo calculateSum($n);
     
// This code is contributed
// by ANKITRAI1
?>

Javascript




<script>
 
// javascript program to find the sum of n terms
 
// Function to calculate the sum
function calculateSum(n)
{
 
    // Return total sum
    return parseInt(Math.pow(n * (n + 1) / 2, 2));
}
 
// Driver code
 var n = 4;
document.write( calculateSum(n));
 
 
// This code contributed by shikhasingrajput
 
</script>

Output: 

100

 

Time complexity: O(logn) because using inbuilt function pow

Auxiliary Space: O(1)
