In life, we often encounter the sum of consecutive numbers. If you use the addition of two numbers or the long addition calculator, it seems a bit troublesome. First, you need to list all the consecutive numbers. Second, you need to manually enter them one by one. If there are only a few consecutive numbers, it’s okay, but if there are hundreds or thousands, it is estimated that you will be busy for several days.

Therefore, we have developed this sum of consecutive integers calculator. Compared with the two numbers addition and the long addition calculator, this calculator is much more convenient. You only need to enter the starting number and the ending number. Of course, if you don’t know the ending number, there is another way, just enter the starting integer and the number of consecutive integers. In one sentence, you only need to enter two numbers to calculate the desired result, and it can be done in seconds.

Of course, if you want to find consecutive integers based on the sum, you can use our consecutive integers calculator.

Back to sum of consecutive integers calculator, in addition to consecutive integers, this calculator can also calculate the sum of consecutive even or odd numbers. Let’s discuss this further below.

Sum of consecutive integers formula

Before we start discussing the formula, let’s take a look at an example. What is the sum of 1 to 100? Is this example a bit familiar? Yes, a common math problem. How do you calculate it? Step by step, counting one number plus one number, or looking for another method?

I think there are only a few people who do the calculations step by step, so what should we do? That’s right, find a regular pattern! What regular pattern? The first number plus the last number is equal to 101, the second number add the penultimate number is equal to 101. The third number and the third penultimate number sum is 101. According to this rule, the sum of the 50th number and the penultimate 50 number is 101.

So the sum of 1 to 100 integers can be divided into 50 groups, and each group sum is 101, that is, 50*101=5050. The picture display below can be seen more clearly.

In further detail, 50 groups are equal to the total number 100 divided by 2. So the sum of 1 to 100 is equal to 100*(1+100)/2. Therefore, from this to the other, replace the starting number 1 with A, replace the ending number 100 with B, and total numbers from A to B is denoted by N.  Thus, the sum of consecutive integers from A to B formula is:

Well, the formula of summing consecutive numbers from A to B comes out: total numbers multiply by the sum of the first number and last number, then divide by 2.

For example, the sum of 100 to 300 integers.

Sum(100, 300) = 201 * (100+300) / 2 = 40200

Note: 201 means the number of all integers between 100 and 300.

Isn’t it simple, then look down.

Sum of consecutive even numbers

If we do not need all the consecutive numbers, only need the sum of even numbers, how to calculate it?  First of all, we must know what is an even number? An even number is an integer that can be divisible by 2. Therefore, to calculate the sum of consecutive even numbers, we must find out all the even numbers first.

Still taking 1 to 100 as an example, according to the definition of even numbers, it can be easily concluded that there are 50 even numbers between 1 and 100. The first even number is 2, and the last even number is 100. According to the above formula of summing consecutive numbers, the sum of even numbers from 1 to 100 is:

SumEven(1,100) = 50 * (2+100) / 2 = 2550

50 means there are 50 even numbers between 1 and 100.

Sum of consecutive odd numbers

Like even numbers, odd numbers are integers that cannot be divisible by 2. There are also 50 odd numbers between 1 and 100. The first odd number is 1, and the last odd number is 99. So the sum of odd numbers between 1 and 100 is:

SumOdd(1,100) = 50 * (1+99) / 2 = 2500

Sum of consecutive integers examples

To deepen understanding, let’s give a few examples:

Example 1: Sum of 1 to 200 integers

Enter 1 in the first input box, enter 200 in the second input box, then click calculate button.

Example 2: Sum of even numbers from 1 to 200

Enter 1 in the first input box, enter 200 in the second input box, then select the even number type, and finally click calculate button.

Example 3: Sum of odd numbers from 1 to 200

Similar to the above, but select the odd integers type.

Example 4: Sum of 100 consecutive integers starting from 500

Enter the starting number 500 in the first input box, and enter the integer number 100 in the second input box, then click calculate button.

Example 5: Sum of 100 consecutive even numbers starting from 500

Put the starting number 500 in the first input box and the consecutive even number 100 in the second input box, then select the even number type, finally click calculate button.

Example 6: Sum of 100 consecutive even numbers starting from 500

The same as example 5, but select the odd type.

Frequently asked questions about sum of consecutive integers

At this point, you should understand the mission of our calculator, here are some common problems:
