# Summing Series Watch

Announcements
1. Hi its me again, I'm having trouble with the following question.
Find the sum of the series r^2(1+r), for the values r=n to r=2n. I keep getting, 1/12n(n+1)(45n^2+25n+2). Is this correct? apparently its... 1/12n(n+1)(45n^2+37n+2), any help would be appreciated since I'm not quite sure where I'm going wrong thanks in advance!

If you could post a picture of your working that will be helpful

It looks like you went down the right path and then something went wrong (the given answer could always be wrong...)
