The multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24, 32…

The series is in the form of AP, having first term as 8 and common difference as 8.

Therefore,

a= 8d= 8S_{15}= ?By the formula of sum of nth term, we know,

S=_{n}n/2 [2a+(n-1)d]S= 15/2 [2(8) + (15-1)8]_{15}= 15/2[6 +(14)(8)]

= 15/2[16 +112]

= 15(128)/2

= 15 × 64

= 960
