This article provides sigma equation examples for LibreOffice Math. Below, you get the codes so you can run them in Math and alo in Writer documents. You can download the sample documents below for Math and Writer to change and share them as you wish. This article is a part of LibreOffice Math the series (Getting Started, Matrix, Integrals, Limits) to help teachers in schools and universities teach using LibreOffice.

How It Looks


Here is how the code looks in LibreOffice Math and Writer.





Example 1


Picture:



Code:

sum from{ i=1 } to{ n } i = { n(n+1) } over { 2 }

 

Example 2


Picture:



Code:

sum from{ i=m } to{ n } a_i = a_m + a_{m+1} + a_{ m+2 } + ... + a_{ n-1 } + a_n
newline newline

sum from{ i=3 } to{ 6 } i^2 = 3^2 + 4^2 + 5^2 + 6^2 = 86.
newline newline


 

Example 3


Picture:



Code:

sum a^2_i = sum from{ i=1 } to{ n } {a^2_1}.
newline newline


 

Example 4


Picture:



Code:

sum from{ i=a } to{ b } g( i ) = 0, {}{} for {}{} b < a.
newline newline

sum from{ i=a } to{ b } g( i ) = g( b ) + sum from{ i=a } to{ b=1 } g( i ), { }{ } for {  }{  } b>= a.
newline newline


 

Example 5


Picture:



Code:

sum from{ k=a } to{ b } f( k ) = f_{ [a,b] } f d%imu
newline newline


 

Example 6


Picture:



Code:

sum from{ k=a } to{ b } f( k ) = %DELTA^-1 f( b+1 ) - %DELTA^-1 f( a )
newline newline



 

Example 7


Picture:



Code:

int from{ s=a-1 } to{ b } f( s ) ds <= sum from{ i=a } to{ b } f( i ) <= int from{ s=a } to{ b+1 } f( s ) ds.
newline newline

int from{ s=a } to{ b+1 } f( s ) ds <= sum from{ i=a } to{ b } f( i ) <= int from{ s=a-1 } f( s ) ds.
newline newline 



 

Example 8


Picture:



Code:

{ b-a }over{ n } sum from{ i=0 } to{ n-1 } f( a+i{b-a}over{n} ) approx int from{ a } to{ b } f( x ) dx,
newline newline


 

Example 9


Picture:



Code:

sum from{ i=m } to{ n-1 } a^i = ( a^m - a^n ) over ( 1-a ) ; ( m < n )
newline newline

sum from{ i=0 } to{ n-1 } i2^i = 2 + ( n-2 )2^n ( special case when a = 2 )
newline newline 



 

Example 10


Picture:



Code:

sum from{ i=m } to{ n } 1 = n + 1 - m
newline newline

sum from{ i=m } to{ n } i = { n(n+1) }over{ 2 } - { m(m-1) }over{ 2 } = { (n+1-m)(n+m) }over{ 2 }
newline newline
