In FileMaker Advanced, you could use a recursive function to loop through the 13 values of n.

without Advanced, you can use a looping script.

If the number of iterations is fixed at 0 to 13 and not subject to user specified variations, you could expand the iteration into multiple addition terms.

The looping script:

Loop

Set Variable [$Sigma ; value: $SIgma + 100 * ( 8 * $n / 3 + 8 ) ]

Exit Loop If [ $n = 12 ]

Set Variable [ $n ; value: $n + 1 ]

End Loop
