Answer Key Name: ____________________________________ Date: __________________ ARITHMETIC SERIES COMMON CORE ALGEBRA II A series is simply the sum of the terms of a sequence. The fundamental definition/notion of a series is below. THE DEFINITION OF A SERIES If the set a1 , a2 , a3 ,... represent the elements of a sequence then the series, Sn , is defined by: n Sn ai i 1 In truth, you have already worked extensively with series in previous lessons almost anytime you evaluated a summation problem. Exercise #1: Given the arithmetic sequence defined by a1 2 and an an 1 5 , then which of the following is 5 the value of S5 ai ? a2 a1 5 2 5 3 a3 a2 5 3 5 8 i 1 (1) 32 (3) 25 (2) 40 (4) 27 a4 a3 5 8 5 13 (2) a5 a4 5 13 5 18 S5 a1 a2 a3 a4 a5 40 The sums associated with arithmetic sequences, known as arithmetic series, have interesting properties, many applications and values that can be predicted with what is commonly known as rainbow addition. Exercise #2: Consider the arithmetic sequence defined by a1 3 and an an 1 2 . The series, based on the first eight terms of this sequence, is shown below. Terms have been paired off as shown. (a) What does each of the paired off sums equal? Each pair has a sum of 20. (b) Why does it make sense that this sum is constant? It makes sense that this sum is constant because as one term increases by 2, the other decreases by 2. (c) How many of these pairs are there? 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 (d) Using your answers to (a) and (c) find the value of the sum using a multiplicative process. The number of pairs will always be half the total number of elements, in this case 4 pairs. 4 20 80 (e) Generalize this now and create a formula for an arithmetic series sum based only on its first term, a1 , its last term, an , and the number of terms, n. In general, each pair will have the sum of the first and last terms, a1 an . The number of pairs will always be half the number of total elements, or n . So, our sum will be given by S n n a1 an . 2 2 COMMON CORE ALGEBRA II, UNIT #5 – SEQUENCES AND SERIES – LESSON #4 eMATHINSTRUCTION, RED HOOK, NY 12571, © 2015 SUM OF AN ARITHMETIC SERIES Given an arithmetic series with n terms, a1 , a2 , ..., an , then its sum is given by: Sn n a1 an 2 Exercise #3: Which of the following is the sum of the first 100 natural numbers?

Arlington High School recently installed a new black-box theatre for local productions. They only had room for 14 rows of seats, where the number of seats in each row constitutes an arithmetic sequence starting with eight seats and increasing by two seats per row thereafter. How many seats are in the new black-box theatre? Show the calculations that lead to your answer. a14 a1 13d 8 13 2 34 seats in last row S14 14 8 34 7 42 294 total seats 2 7. Simeon starts a retirement account where he will place $50 into the account on the first month and increasing his deposit by $5 per month each month after.

The distance an object falls per second while only under the influence of gravity forms an arithmetic sequence with it falling 16 feet in the first second, 48 feet in the second, 80 feet in the third, etcetera. What is the total distance an object will fall in 10 seconds? Show the work that leads to your answer. This is an arithmetic sequence whose terms are separated by a common difference of 32. So, we can find the last or 10th term: 10 d i 1 i 10 16 304 5 320 1, 600 ft 2 d10 d1 9 32 16 9 32 304 9. A large grandfather clock strikes its bell once at 1:00, twice at 2:00, three times at 3:00, etcetera. What is the total number of times the bell will be struck in a day? Use an arithmetic series to help solve the problem and show how you arrived at your answer. We can start adding up the number of times the clock strikes: 1 2 3 12 1 2 3 12 1 2 3 12 12 1 12 6 13 78 2 78 78 156 bell strikes per day COMMON CORE ALGEBRA II, UNIT #5 – SEQUENCES AND SERIES – LESSON #4 eMATHINSTRUCTION, RED HOOK, NY 12571, © 2015
