some1 tell me put n=1 and see both side equal , then that's proved

- anonymous

but when i try another n=2 then it s not equal

- myininaya

for n=1
we have (3*1-2)^2=1^2=1 on lhs
we have 1*(6*1^2-3*1-1)/2=2/2=1 on rhs
so now we get to assume is true for k>=1
and now we have to show it is true for k+1

- myininaya

1^2+4^2+7^2+....+(3k-2)^2+(3(k+1)-2)^2
we want to show this equals the other side (whereever this is n we need k+1 to be there)

- myininaya

so we know 1^2+4^2+...+(3k-2)^2=k(6k^2-3k-1)/2
so we have k[6k^2-3k-1]/2+(3(k+1)-2)^2 we need to manipulate this so that it is
(k+1)*(6(k+1)^2-3(k+1)-1)/2 ok? try to do this

- myininaya

oh hello, n=2 it does work
for n=2 we have on lhs
1^2+4^2=1+16=17
on rhs we have 2(6*2^2-3*2-1)/2=24-6-1=17
so does work for n=2

- anonymous

it wont work for the k+1 because the LHS ^ 2 and the RHS ^ 3 ? So can you explain more about this ? :-<

- myininaya

?

- myininaya

what do you mean?

- anonymous

let me try this again
