For each series, calculate t12 and S12

a) 37 + 41 + 45 + 49 + ...

Okay so I calculated S12 to be 708, and I know that's right.

For t12, I know I can easily find the general formula and then use that to find t12, but isn't there a faster way to do it knowing that the sum is 708?

But I'd still like to know if there IS a way to find t12 with S12, just in case that comes up later or something.
