That wasn't done in your opening post and you should have started with U1 and U2 instead of U0 and U1. As it stands, you never defined U2. I had already obtained (n² + n  84)/2, and your formula can be obtained from that by replacing n with n+7 and gathering like terms. With the above renumbering, your formula will give the sum correctly if there is more than one term. Producing a single formula that also works for just one term requires allowing an ugly formula that's awkward to work with. If there's more than one term, the formula n = $\lfloor$√(2Sn + 84)$\rfloor$  7 gives n in terms of Sn.
