Program to find the nth term of the series -2, 4, -6, 8….

Given a number N, the task is to find the Nth term of the following series.

-2, 4, -6, 8……

Examples:



Input: n=4
Output: 8

Input: n=3
Output: -6

Approach: By clearly examining the series we can find the Tn term for the series and with the help of tn we can find the desired result.

Tn=-2 + 4 -6 +8 …..
We can see that here odd terms are negative and even terms are positive
Tn=2(-1)nn
Tn=(-1)n2n

Below is the implementation of above approach.
