What do you mean?

If "calculate sum given n" then SUM = n(n+1)/2
In your example, n = 6

If you were to make a set of stairs from stacks of blocks (concrete, Lego etc...), that series would tell you how many you need.

Good pic.

Do you know what a function is, because the sums of series provide values to many functions in applied Mathematics (and some in pure Mathematics) ?
