Put i = 1, 2, 3 & 50 in (-4i) First term(i = 1) $a_{1}$= (-4$\times$1) = -4 Second term(i = 2)$a_{2}$ = (-4$\times$2) = -8 Third term(i = 3)$a_{3}$ = (-4$\times$3) = -12 Last term $a_{l}$(i = 50) = $a_{50}$ = (-4$\times$50) = -200 The sequence becomes = -4 - 8 - 12 -......- 200 Indicated Sum = -4 - 8 - 12 -.....- 200 = -5100
