How do you find how many terms this has if the lower limit is k=b and the upper limit is b+12, i know you subtract them and add 1, but i'm not sure how to do it with this

Can you please help

Thanks

sigma sign, on the top is b+12 and on the bottom is k=b, and the equation is 3n-7 - June 8th 2010, 09:42 PMProve It
