## How to Find Sum of First 100 Natural Numbers?

The below workout with step by step calculation shows how to find what is the sum of natural numbers or positive integers from 1 to 100 by applying arithmetic progression. It's one of an easiest methods to quickly find the sum of any given number series.
step 1 address the formula, input parameters & values.
Input parameters & values:
The number series 1, 2, 3, 4, . . . . , 99, 100.
The first term a = 1
The common difference d = 1
Total number of terms n = 100

step 2 apply the input parameter values in the formula
Sum = n/2 x (a + Tn)
= 100/2 x (1 + 100)
= 10100/2
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + . . . . + 99 + 100 = 5050

Therefore, 5050 is the sum of positive integers upto 100.
