    actually I found general formula for sum, but I am not sure if I can use it as a proof..

    can you work it up to the formula? then once a general formula is "determined" you might be able to prove it by induction

    of course, you might have a better notion of what you need. What are your thoughts on it? what have you been thinking would work?

    You see the poly is always m+1 degree when expression is m degree

    that looks like a binomial expansion to me

    \[\sum(n+1)^k=\binom{k}{0}n^k1^{0}+\binom{k}{1}n^{k-1}1^1+\binom{k}{2}n^{k-2}1^2+...+\binom{k}{k}n^{k-k}1^k\]

    n=0,1,2,3,... produces the same summation i bleieve as:1^k + 2^k + 3^k + ...

    can we use this notation\[\sum_{n=0 }^k(n+1)^k=\binom{k}{n}n^k1^{0}+\binom{k}{n+1}n^{k-1}1^1+\binom{k}{n+2}n^{k-2}1^2+...+\binom{k}{n+k-1}n^{k-k}1^k\]

    i^1; show a second degree poly 1,3,6,10,15 2 3 4 5 1 1 \[1+2n+\frac{n(n-1)}{2!}~:~n=0,1,2,3,...\] is a 2nd degree poly i^2; show a third degree poly 1 5 14 30 55 4 9 16 25 5 7 9 2 2 \[1+4n+5\frac{n(n-1)}{2!}+2\frac{n(n-1)(n-2)}{3!}~:~n=0,1,2,3,...\]is a 3rd degree poly

    if 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
