Then c=mb=mna(since b=na).since mn is an integer, so this implies that a|c

Evaluate fraction of sum
So i have to evaluate this sum:
122+4252+7282+102112+1+224252+72+82102112+
it has the form : 0[(3n+1)2(3n+2)2]0(1)n[(3n+1)2+(3n+2)2]
My current attempt : Trying to convert this into power series
a(n)=(3n+1)2(3n+2)2      b(n)=(3n+1)2+(3n+2)2
Can a(n) and b(n) be the definite integral of certain polynomial function f(x) ?
Maybe there is a better direction. Can someone give me a hint ?

1. Why are units so important in measurement? Giving examples of measurements with no units should help.
2. What does it mean to say that 2 expressions are equivalent?

Intuitively, why does a c = 1 c a ?
For intuition, I reference objects. Imagine making a dessert with: a as apples and c as chestnuts.
Question. How and why is
a c ( 3 ) = 1 c a ( 4 ) ?
I ask only about intuition; please omit formal arguments and proofs (eg: Intuition is not generated by the explanation that rationalising (4)'s denominator produces (3)).
