Write the sum of first n odd natural numbers.


Write the sum of first n odd natural numbers.


We need to find the sum of 1, 3, 5, 7... upto n terms.

Here, a = 1, d = 2

We know:

$S_{n}=\frac{n}{2}\{2 a+(n-1) d\}$

$=\frac{n}{2}\{2 \times 1+(n-1) 2\}$


Therefore, the sum of the first $n$ odd numbers is $n^{2}$.
