# Program to find Nth term of series 2, 12, 28, 50, 77, 112, 152, 198, …..

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

2, 12, 28, 50, 77, 112, 152, 198…..(N Terms)

**Examples:**

Input: N = 4 Output: 50 For N = 4 4th Term = ( 3 * 4 * 4 + 4 - 2) = 50 Input: N = 10 Output: 307

**Approach:** The generalized Nth term of this series:

Below is the required implementation:
