Special Odd Series Sum
Basic Accuracy: 65.95% Submissions: 91 Points: 1

Given the value of n, we need to find the sum of the series where i-th term is sum of first i odd natural numbers.

NOTE: Sum of the series 1 + (1+3) + (1+3+5) + (1+3+5+7) + …… + (1+3+5+7+…+(2n-1))

Example 1:

Input: n = 2
Output: 5 
Explanation: 1 + (1+3) = 5
Hence sum of the series is 5.


Example 2:

Input: n = 5
Output: 55
Explanation: 1 + (1+3) + (1+3+5) +
(1+3+5+7) + (1+3+5+7+9) = 55.
Hence sum of the series is 55.


Your Task:  
You dont need to read input or print anything. Complete the function sumOfTheSeries() which takes n as input parameter and returns the sum of the series of n terms.


Expected Time Complexity: O(1)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Constraints:
1<= n <=1000
