# Math Help - Confusion in Series

1. ## Confusion in Series

Given that $Ur = r (2r + 1) + 2^{r + 2}$, find
n
Ur
r=1

I got $\frac{1}{6} n(n + 1) (4n + 5) + 2^{(n + 3)} - 4$

$U_r = r(2r + 1) + 2r + 2 = 2r^2 + 3r + 2$.
Therefore $\sum_{r=1}^{n} U_r = \sum_{r=1}^{n} (2r^2 + 3r + 2) = 2 \sum_{r=1}^{n}r^2 + 3 \sum_{r=1}^{n} r + 2n$
