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

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

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

3, 12, 29, 54, 87, ………….

Examples: 
 

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

Input: N = 10
Output: 372

 

Approach:
The Nth Term of the given series is: 
 



Nth term of the series T_n = 4 * n * n - 3 * n + 2[Tex] [/Tex]

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
 

C++




// CPP program to find N-th term of the series:
// 3, 12, 29, 54, 87, ...
 
#include <iostream>
#include <math.h>
using namespace std;
 
// calculate Nth term of series
int getNthTerm(long long int N)
{
    // Return Nth term
    return 4 * pow(N, 2) - 3 * N + 2;
}
 
// driver code
int main()
{
    // declaration of number of terms
    long long int N = 10;
 
    // Get the Nth term
    cout << getNthTerm(N);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to find N-th term of the series:
// 3, 12, 29, 54, 87, ...
 
import java.util.*;
class solution
{
 
static long getNthTerm(long N)
{
    // Return Nth term
    return 4 *(long)Math.pow(N, 2) - 3 * N + 2;
}
 
//Driver code
public static void main(String arr[])
{
// declaration of number of terms
    long N = 10;
 
    // Get the Nth term
    System.out.println(getNthTerm(N));
 
}
}

Python3




# Python3 program to find N-th term of the series:
# 3, 12, 29, 54, 87, ...
 
# calculate Nth term of series
def getNthTerm(N):
 
    # Return Nth term
    return 4 * pow(N, 2) - 3 * N + 2
 
# driver code
if __name__=='__main__':
     
    # declaration of number of terms
    N = 10
 
    # Get the Nth term
    print(getNthTerm(N))

    return 4 * pow($N, 2) -
           3 * $N + 2;
}
 
// Driver code
 
// declaration of number of terms
$N = 10;
 
// Get the Nth term
