    I don't know the program or what you are trying to do with it but the summation
    \sum_{n = 1}^nq_n^2x_n^2
    makes no sense. On the one hand you are treating n as a variable, on the other you are treating it as a constant.

    You might try inputting the formula as
    \sum_{i = 1}^nq_i^2x_i^2
    or something.

    It doesn't help that the dimensions are non-conformant for the summation either
