Its the same..nothing different..try it on paper

Step 1: try out for n=2, Step 2: try out for n=k Step 3 try for n=k+1, so it's nothing different even though it is n+1 choose k?

\[ {2\choose 2} + {3\choose 2}+ {4\choose 2}+...++ {k+2\choose 2} > \frac{ (k+1)^{3} }{ 6}\] \[\frac{ k ^{3} }{ 6 }+{k+2\choose 2} = \frac{ k ^{3} }{ 6 } + \frac{ (k+2)! }{ 2!k!}=\frac{ 2!k!k ^{3}+6(k+2)! }{ 2!k!6 }=\frac{ k!k ^{3}+3(k+2)! }{ k!6 }\] I don't know how to simplify the resy, could someone please help me?

assuming that (for k>1) \[ \large \sum_{i=2}^{k+1}\binom{i}{2}>\frac{k^3}{6} \] then \[ \large \sum_{i=2}^{k+2}\binom{i}{2}>\frac{(k+1)^3}{6} \]
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so \[ \large \sum_{i= 2}^{k+2}=\sum_{i=2}^{k+1}\binom{i}{2}+\binom{k+2}{2} >\frac{k^3}{6}+\frac{(k+2)!}{2!k!} \]

i made a mistake
 2 years ago

helder_edwin Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it should be \[ \large =\frac{k![k^3+3(k+2)(k+1)]}{6k!}=\frac{k^3+3(k+2)(k+1)}{6} \]

Obviously i didn't still don't get the part where you factor the k! out from 3(k+2)!

now resuming: since k>1 \[ \large =\frac{(k+1)^3+6k+5}{6}>\frac{(k+1)^3}{6} \]

Oh so you're just saying that just as 2! = 2*1 the number before k+2 must have been k+1, right?
