got 2 series. 1. 1^{2} - 2^{2} + 3^{2} - 4^{2} + ................. 99^{2} - 100^{2} (ok those are just squares) 2. 1.1! + 2.2! + ....... 50.50! need to find sum...

Use sum of an arithmetic sequence where n = number of terms = 50 a = the first term = -3 and d = the common difference between terms = -4
Hello, adhyeta! Are you familiar with these summation formulas? . . . . . . Hence: . . .
