Let to be a is first term and ‘d'” is common Difference and l is last term of Given Arithmetic Sequence or Progression;-

Arithmetic Sequence or Progression which are given below;-

Arithmetic Sequence or Progression;-

8,16,24,32….

Here,

First term= 8

CommOn Difference=8

Number of terms=15

We know that Formula of Summation of Arithmetic Sequence or Progression.

Sn=n/2(2a+(n-1)d)

S15=15/2(2×8+(15-1)8

=15/2(16+(14)8)

=15/2(16+112)

=15/2 x 128

=15 x 64

=960
