Abstract

Very recently, Rakha and Rathie obtained an extension of the classical Saalschtz's summation theorem. Here, in this paper, we first give an elementary proof of the extended Saalschtz's summation theorem. By employing it, we next present certain extenstions of Ramanujan's result and another result involving hypergeometric series. The results presented in this paper are simple, interesting and (potentially) useful.
