# What is the Sum of First 170 Even Numbers?

## How to Find the Sum of First 170 Even Numbers?

The below workout with step by step calculation shows how to find what is the sum of first 170 even numbers by applying arithmetic progression. It's one of the easiest methods to quickly find the sum of given number series.

step 1 Address the formula, input parameters & values.

Input parameters & values:

The number series 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, . . . . , 340.

The first term a = 2

The common difference d = 2

Total number of terms n = 170

step 2 apply the input parameter values in the AP formula

Sum = n/2 x (a + T_{n})

= 170/2 x (2 + 340)

= (170 x 342)/ 2

= 58140/2

2 + 4 + 6 + 8 + 10 + 12 + . . . . + 340 = 29070

Therefore, **29070** is the sum of first 170 even numbers.
