Step 1

a)

If there are n scores, ith score can be represented as Xi (X subscript i) ie the first score (i = 1) can be represented as X1 ( X subscript 1) and second score (i =2) can be represented as X2( X subscript 2).  

Adding scores  from X1 to Xn and then squaring the sum can be represented as shown below.
