# Program to find Nth term of the series 3, 12, 29, 54, 87, …

Given a number N, the task is to find the Nth term of this series:

3, 12, 29, 54, 87, ………….

**Examples:**

Input:N = 4Output:54Explanation:Nth term = 4 * pow(n, 2) - 3 * n + 2 = 4 * pow(4, 2) - 3 * 4 + 2 = 54Input:N = 10Output:372

**Approach:**

The Nth Term of the given series is:

Nth term of the series[Tex] [/Tex]

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
