The sum of squares of the first n even numbers means that, we first find the square and add all them to give the sum.

There are two methods to find the sum of squares of the first n even number

We can use loops to iterate from 1 to n increase number by 1 each time find the square and add it to the sum variable −

#include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int sum = 0, n =12; for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) sum += (2 * i) * (2 * i); cout <<"Sum of first "<<n<<" natural numbers is "<<sum; return 0; }

Sum of first 12 natural numbers is 2600

The complexity of this program increase by order 0(n). So, for big values of n, code takes time.

To deal with this problem a mathematical formula is derived which is Sum of even natural number is 2n(n+1)(2n+1)/3

#include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int n = 12; int sum = (2*n*(n+1)*(2*n+1))/3; cout <<"Sum of first "<<n<<" natural numbers is "<<sum; return 0; }

Sum of first 12 natural numbers is 2600
