Are you still looking for a sum of consecutive squares calculator? Come and try our sum of consecutive squares calculator with steps, it will certainly meet your requirements.

Our sum of consecutive squares calculator can not only calculate consecutive integers, but also consecutive even numbers and consecutive odd numbers. The default is to calculate the sum of squares of the first N natural numbers. Of course, you can specify the starting integer if you need it. Most importantly, in addition to the calculation results, it will also show the complete calculation steps, including common calculation steps and formula calculation steps. I think these are all you want.

## Sum of squares formula

Calculating the sum of squares of consecutive integers requires at least three steps:

1. List the integers that meet the conditions.
2. Calculate the square value of all integers.
3. Add up all the square values calculated in the second step, and the result is the sum of squares of consecutive integers.

Obviously, we need formulas to simplify these steps. Fortunately, we get the formula we want through the cuemath and themathpage website.

### Sum of consecutive squares formula

N * (N + 1) * (2 * N + 1) / 6

### Sum of squares of first N even numbers formula

2 * N * (N + 1) * (2 * N + 1) / 3

### Sum of squares of first N odd numbers formula

N * (2 * N + 1) * (2 * N – 1) / 3

Obviously, these formulas are calculating the sum of squares of first N terms, that is, the starting number is 1. What if the starting number is not 1? Don’t worry, make a small change. First, calculate the sum of squares from 1 to N, then calculate the sum of squares from 1 to the starting number M, and finally subtract the sum of squares from 1 to the starting number M from the sum of squares from 1 to N. So that we can get the sum of consecutive squares from M to N.

N * (N + 1) * (2 * N + 1) / 6 – M * (M + 1) * (2 * M + 1) / 6

The same is true for even and odd numbers.

Next, let’s give some examples.

## Sum of consecutive squares examples

### Example 1: find the sum of squares of first 20 natural numbers.

Common calculation

First 20 natural numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20. Their sum of squares is

12 + 22 + 32 + 42 + 52 + 62 + 72 + 82 + 92 + 102 + 112 + 122 + 132 + 142 + 152 + 162 + 172 + 182 + 192 + 202

= 1 + 4 + 9 + 16 + 25 + 36 + 49 + 64 + 81 + 100 + 121 + 144 + 169 + 196 + 225 + 256 + 289 + 324 + 361 + 400

= 2870

Formula calculation

There are 20 integers in first 20 natural numbers. So, their sum of squares is

20 * (20 + 1) * (2 * 20 + 1) / 6

= 20 * 21 * 41 / 6

= 17220 / 6

= 2870

### Example 2: find the sum of squares of natural numbers from 10 to 25.

Common calculation

The integers between 10 and 25 are 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25. So, Their sum of squares is

102 + 112 + 122 + 132 + 142 + 152 + 162 + 172 + 182 + 192 + 202 + 212 + 222 + 232 + 242 + 252
= 100 + 121 + 144 + 169 + 196 + 225 + 256 + 289 + 324 + 361 + 400 + 441 + 484 + 529 + 576 + 625
= 5240

Formula calculation

There are 25 integers between 1 and 25, and 9 integers less than 10. So, the sum of squares of natural numbers from 10 to 25 is

25 * (25 + 1) * (2 * 25 + 1) / 6 – 9 * (9 + 1) * (2 * 9 + 1) / 6
= 25 * 26 * 51 / 6 – 9 * 10 * 19 / 6
= 33150 / 6 – 1710 / 6
= 5525 – 285
= 5240

### Example 3: sum of squares of first 20 even numbers.

Common calculation

The first 20 even numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38 and 40. Their sum of squares is

22 + 42 + 62 + 82 + 102 + 122 + 142 + 162 + 182 + 202 + 222 + 242 + 262 + 282 + 302 + 322 + 342 + 362 + 382 + 402
= 4 + 16 + 36 + 64 + 100 + 144 + 196 + 256 + 324 + 400 + 484 + 576 + 676 + 784 + 900 + 1024 + 1156 + 1296 + 1444 + 1600
= 11480

Formula calculation

There are 20 even integers between 1 and 40. So, the sum of squares of first 20 even numbers is

2 * 20 * (20 + 1) * (2 * 20 + 1) / 3
= 40 * 21 * 41 / 3
= 34440 / 3
= 11480

= 100 + 144 + 196 + 256 + 324 + 400 + 484 + 576 + 676 + 784 + 900
= 4840

Formula calculation

There are 15 even integers between 1 and 30, and 4 even integers less than 10. So, the sum of squares of even numbers from 10 to 30 is

2 * 15 * (15 + 1) * (2 * 15 + 1) / 3- 2 * 4 * (4 + 1) * (2 * 4 + 1) / 3
= 30 * 16 * 31 / 3 – 8 * 5 * 9 / 3
= 14880 / 3 – 360 / 3
= 4960 – 120
= 4840

Common calculation

The first 10 odd numbers are 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17 and 19. Their sum of squares is

12 + 32 + 52 + 72 + 92 + 112 + 132 + 152 + 172 + 192
= 1 + 9 + 25 + 49 + 81 + 121 + 169 + 225 + 289 + 361
= 1330

Formula calculation

There are 10 odd integers between 1 and 19. So, the sum of squares of first 10 odd numbers is
