Calculator Help.

A very complex math TI calculator question will be asked, so anyone that isn't fluent in math terms please leave.

Ok, my teacher assigned us this as extra credit, and it goes a little something like this.

You enter an equation into the calculator, then you proceed to the table. It can be any equation, X^2 for example. Once you go to the table you look at the outputs, which are the y points such as, 1,4,9,16,25 etc. My teacher is telling us to find the way to choose the certain amount of outputs and add them up together without writing them down, just using the calculator and adding them up by doing some weird stuff.

Any more questions just leave a comment.

Thanks.
