    Is it n(2n^2 + 3n -2) on the right side?

    which side? left or right

    Both. There is a common factor.

    Not really.\[\frac{A}{6}n(n+1)(2n+1) +bn= n(n^2 + 3n -2)\]\[n[\frac{A}{6}(n+1)(2n+1)+b] = n(n^2 + 3n -2)\] Cancel the common factor. and expand the left side.

    you could change b to 6b/6 and take out a factor of 1/6 right?

    You can, of course. But there is a common factor on both sides that you can cancel, what is it?

    get rid of n on both sides? if not then i dont know waht the common factor is on both sides

  21. Callisto

    Yes! So, now, you get \[\frac{A}{6}(n+1)(2n+1)+b = n^2 + 3n -2\]So, expand the terms on the left. What do you get?

    so that means to get 2n² A has to be 6

    I'm sorry but I have to go now... Basically, you need to expand the first term on the left, combine the like terms and compare the coefficient of x^2, x and constant terms on both sides. Then you can find A and B. As for your expansion, sorry again that it is wrong.

    a has to be 6 is correct, I supposed :|

    Once you find a, then compare the constant term on both sides. You should be able to get b. Good luck :)
