(a) Compute the sum 101^2 - 97^2 + 93^2 - 89^2 + .... + 5^2 - 1^2
(b) Compute the sum (a +(2n+1)d)^2- (a + (2n)d)^2 +(a + (2n-1)d)^2 - (a+(2n-2)d)^2 + ... + (a+d)^2 - a^2

Didn't you just ask this like 3 minutes ago? Also, it has been answered here. But, finding that you probably don't have the time to go over to the link, as you are too busy posting questions every 3 minutes, here is the answer guest has posted:

(a) 101^2 - 97^2 + 93^2 - 89^2 + ... + 5^2 - 1^2 = 101 + 97 + 93 + 89 + ... + 5 + 1 = 1326.

(b) (a + (2n + 1)d)^2 - (a + (2n)d)^2 + ... + (a + d)^2 - a^2 = (a + (2n + 1) d + (a + 2nd + ... + a + d) + a = n(3a + (n + 2)d).

sorry, my computer was lagging so I accidentally posted several, but can you give an explenation so I can do more of these?

I'm sorry, but I am also quite confused on how the guest got the answer. I did it with difference of squares, which is a long, rigorous process... let me sent this to someone else...

a ) is wrong!

Here is your entire sequence grouped in "twos"

(10201 -9409, 8649 -7921, 7225 -6561, 5929 -5329, 4761 -4225, 3721 -3249, 2809 -2401, 2025 -1681, 1369 -1089, 841 -625, 441 -289, 169 -81, 25 -1)

What is the difference between each pair beginning with first? The following:

(792, 728, 664, 600, 536, 472, 408, 344, 280, 216, 152, 88, 24) - This is an arithmetic sequence.                    How do you sum it up?

[F + L] / 2 * N (number of terms) =Sum, where F=First term, L=Last term, N =Number of terms.

[792 + 24] / 2 * 13 =5,304 - And that is it!.

Im sorry. I was really skeptical about the other answer....but I didn't have a better way...so....

Thanks guest, here is a little more insight for others to see what you have done.

(a) Compute the sum 101^2 - 97^2 + 93^2 - 89^2 + .... + 5^2 - 1^2

I paired them first

(101^2 - 97^2) + (93^2 - 89^2) + .... + (5^2 - 1^2)

then turned them around

(5^2 - 1^2)+ ..................   +  (93^2 - 89^2) +  (101^2 - 97^2)

$$T_1=(5^2 - 1^2) = [(3+2)^2 - (3-2)^2]\\ T_2=(13^2-9^2)= [(11+2)^2 - (11-2)^2]\\ ...\\ T_n= [((8n-5)+2)^2 - ((8n-5)-2)^2]\\ ...\\ T_{13}=(101^2-97^2)\\\quad= [(8*13-5+2)^2 - (8*13-5-2)^2]\\ \quad= [(99+2)^2 - (99-2)^2]\quad \text{just checking... it is good}\\$$

$$T_n= [((8n-5)+2)^2 - ((8n-5)-2)^2]\\ T_n= [(8n-3)^2 - (8n-7)^2]\\ T_n= [(8n)^2-48n+9)] - [(8n)^2-112n+49)]\\ T_n= [-48n+9)] - [-112n+49)]\\ T_n= -48n+9 +112n-49\\ T_n= 64n-40\\ \text{This is an AP}\\ a=24, d=64,\;n=13\\ S_n=\frac{n}{2}(2a+(n-1)d]\\ S_{13}=\frac{13}{2}(2*24+12*64]\\ S_{13}=13(24+6*64]\\ S_{13}=13*408\\ S_{13}=5304\\$$

LaTex:

T_1=(5^2 - 1^2) = [(3+2)^2 - (3-2)^2]\\
T_2=(13^2-9^2)=  [(11+2)^2 - (11-2)^2]\\
...\\
T_n= [((8n-5)+2)^2 - ((8n-5)-2)^2]\\
...\\

T_n= [((8n-5)+2)^2 - ((8n-5)-2)^2]\\
T_n= [(8n-3)^2 - (8n-7)^2]\\
T_n= [(8n)^2-48n+9)] - [(8n)^2-112n+49)]\\
T_n= [-48n+9)] - [-112n+49)]\\
T_n= -48n+9 +112n-49\\
T_n= 64n-40\\
\text{This is an AP}\\
a=24, d=64,\;n=13\\
S_n=\frac{n}{2}(2a+(n-1)d]\\
S_{13}=\frac{13}{2}(2*24+12*64]\\
S_{13}=13(24+6*64]\\
S_{13}=13*408\\
S_{13}=5304\\

Wow... I really need to work on reading LaTeX!

Why ?

You do not need to understand latex.

The latex coding that i have posted is for my benefit, and for the possible benefit of someone who specifically wants to learn LaTex, it is not a part of the answer.

The answer is written in normal maths symbols.

(it is rendered LaTex, but it is not LaTex coding)
