Expand the series and evaluate: ∑ {5(on top), k=1(on bottom), k^3 on the right side}

    \[\sum_{k=1}^{5} k^3\]

    i think its just the square of k^1

    \[\sum k=\frac{n(n+1)}{2}\] \[\sum k^3=\left(\frac{n(n+1)}{2}\right)^2\] rings a bell to me

    It's always a good idea to list out the elements of series this small:\[1^3+2^3+3^3+4^3+5^3.\]

    Yeah, thanks. So would it be 1, 8, 27, 64, 125?

    Don't forget that it's a summation! :P

    Deriving this proof is a good excercise, there are many ways actually, but I like way of differentiating and then substituting .. probably that's how euler did it!

    Okay, I hope you two know that that wasn't very helpful. I am just wondering how to solve this. Across, what do you mean by a summation?

    ADD them up! that is what summation means
