Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually I found general formula for sum, but I am not sure if I can use it as a proof..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2can you work it up to the formula? then once a general formula is "determined" you might be able to prove it by induction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2of course, you might have a better notion of what you need. What are your thoughts on it? what have you been thinking would work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sum(n+1)^k=\binom{k}{0}n^k1^{0}+\binom{k}{1}n^{k1}1^1+\binom{k}{2}n^{k2}1^2+...+\binom{k}{k}n^{kk}1^k\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2n=0,1,2,3,... produces the same summation i bleieve as:1^k + 2^k + 3^k + ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can we use this notation\[\sum_{n=0 }^k(n+1)^k=\binom{k}{n}n^k1^{0}+\binom{k}{n+1}n^{k1}1^1+\binom{k}{n+2}n^{k2}1^2+...+\binom{k}{n+k1}n^{kk}1^k\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2something that bugs me about what i posted is that if n=0, we run into a 0^0 case ....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if we can construct this polynomial as a pattern; then we can try to induct that pattern to the k+1th term or would we have to prove that each substructure is inductable? this is the part i hate about proofs, you never know when you have to reinvent the wheel
