  • Dude

    Sorry Dr., wrong. I don’t understand the math behind the correct answer, but this is the key to finding the answer: The nth term in the series is given by the sum of x^n for x in the range 1 to 3, i.e. 1^n + 2^n + 3^n.

    Sorry, Anuj you are not there yet. This is a mathematical brain bender for sure. Here is the final hint:

    The nth term in the series is given by the sum of x^n for x in the range 1 to 3, i.e. 1^n + 2^n + 3^n.
    Thus the first term is 1^1 + 2^1 + 3^1 = 1 + 2 + 3 = 6,
    the second term is 1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 = 1 + 4 + 9 = 14,
    and so on.

  • Brent you are right again and today’s winner!
    794 The nth term in the series is given by the sum of x^n for x in the range 1 to 3, i.e. 1^n + 2^n + 3^n. Thus the first term is 1^1 + 2^1 + 3^1 = 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, the second term is 1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 = 1 + 4 + 9 = 14, and so on.
    The sixth term is then 1^6 + 2^6 + 3^6 = 1 + 64 + 729 = 794.
