# 1•Sum of first n natural numbers : 1 + 2 + 3 +……+ n = n ( n +1)/2

2• Sum of squares of first n natural numbers : 1² + 2² + 3² +……+ n² = n ( n +1) ( 2n +1) /6

3• Sum of cubes of first n natural numbers : 1³ + 2³ + 3³ +……+ n³ = [ n ( n +1)/2]²

4• Sum of first n odd numbers: n²

5• Sum of first n even numbers: n² + n

6• Sum of squares of 1st n Odd natural number : 1² + 3² + 5² +……+ ( 2n -1)² = n ( 2n -1) ( 2n +1)/3

7• Sum of squares of 1st n even natural numbers : 2² + 4² + 6² +…..+ (2n)² = 2n ( n +1) ( 2n +1) /3

8• Sum of cubes of 1st n odd natural numbers : 1³ + 2³ +3³ +……+ ( 2n -1)³ = n² ( 2n² -1)

9• Sum of cubes if first n even natural numbers : 2³ + 4³ + 6³ +…….+ 2n³ = 2[n ( n+1)] ²
