Here's the question 

 

Let $a_n = 4n^3 + 6n^2 + 4n + 1.$ Find\[a_8 + a_9 + a_{10} + \dots + a_{23}.\]

 

 

 

Thank you.

(I do not own this problem, it would be helpful if you show the process of solving instead of just the answer so we can all learnblush)

You can use the formula

\[\sum_{k = 1}^n k = \frac{n(n + 1)}{2}\]

\[\sum_{k = 1}^n k^2 = \frac{n(n + 1)(2n + 1)}{6}\]

 

Then $a_8 + a_9 + \dots + a_{23} = \boxed{326520}$.

The answer isn't right, but thanks for trying
