can you explain it further and what you'd do?
the mark scheme uses n/2 ( a + L) i believe which isnt what we've learnt

the mark scheme uses n/2 ( a + L) i believe which isnt what we've learnt where a is the first term and l is the last term, it's a standard formula which you should learn.

So if you have to sum from to then that's ,

but this formula uses the first term, so you have to realise that the sum from to is the same as summing from to subtract the sum form to because and and notice when you subtract them you're left with the summation form to which is what you're asked for, so apply the summation formula remembering a is the first term (the number at the bottom) and l is the last term (the number at the top).

Just sub in 10 and 30, your 'n' value is 30-10+1= 21, so 21/2(a+L)

ahh adexcel, makes sense, in aqa we have this topic in c2, similar to how circle geometry is on c2 for edexcel, whereas its c1 for aqa?
