### Re: Sum this.

You already can do it with Maxima.

To do it by hand just means plugging in to the formula. Do you need help with that?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Yes, it will work. You can also use Maxima when you have learned how to do it by hand well.
