Sum[ <List> ]
Calculates the sum of all list elements.
Examples:
  • Sum[{1, 2, 3}] yields the number a = 6.
  • Sum[{x^2, x^3}] yields f(x) = x2 + x3.
  • Sum[Sequence[i, i, 1, 100]] yields the number a = 5050.
  • Sum[{(1, 2), (2, 3)}] yields the point A = (3, 5).
  • Sum[{(1, 2), 3}] yields the point B = (4, 2).
  • Sum[{"a", "b", "c"}] yields the text "abc".
Note: This command works for numbers, points, vectors, text, and functions.


Sum[ <List>, <Number n of Elements> ]
Calculates the sum of the first n list elements.
Example: Sum[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}, 4] yields the number a = 10.
Note: This command works for numbers, points, vectors, text, and functions.


Sum[ <List of Numbers>, <List of Frequencies> ]
Returns the sum of given list of numbers considering the frequencies.
Example:
Sum[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5},{3, 2, 4, 4, 1}] yields 40.



CAS Syntax

Sum[ <List> ]
Calculates the sum of all list elements.
Examples:
  • Sum[{1, 2, 3}] yields 6.
  • Sum[{a, b, c}] yields a + b + c.


Sum[ <Expression f(t)>, <Variable t>, <Start Value s>, <End Value e>]
Computes sum \sum_{t=s}^{e}f(t). End value might be infinity.
Examples:
  • Sum[i^2, i, 1, 3] yields 14.
  • Sum[r^i, i, 0, n] yields \frac{r^{n+1} - 1}{r - 1}.
  • Sum[(1/3)^i, i, 0, Infinity] yields \frac{3}{2}.
