Personally I would think the following is the exact translation in Python of the math formula shown in the article:
sum(2*i for i in range(1, 101))
(well... if you ignore the fact that the upper limit of range in not inclusive so I need to put 101 instead of 100)
So now that you know about Sigmas etc. you can read The Art of Computer Programming ;-)
