Series question

  1. Nov 16, 2004 #1
    I have a programming assignment to fill an array with this series: 1,4, 9, 25, 36, …. The problem is I don't know what this series is so I can't write the program. Can anyone help?

    looks like a mistake to me, I think it should be 1,4,9,16,25,36 therefore: an = n2
