# Sum Command ##### Command Categories (All commands)

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

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

## CAS specific syntax

Following syntax works only in CAS view

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.
Example:
• Sum[i^2, i, 1, 3] returns 14.
• Sum[r^i, i,0,n] returns (1-r^(n+1))/(1-r).
• Sum[(1/3)^i, i,0,Infinity] returns 3/2.
