Lemme double check what exactly closed form is and I may be able to assist.

Dang it... it appears as though closed form deals with diff eq (according to a quick google). I am only at Cal 2, so I think I'm going to have to sit this one out :/

Could you help show me?

\[(2+\frac{2k}{n})(2+\frac{2k}{n})=4+\frac{8k}{n}+\frac{4k^2}{n^2}\]

Mr.Me Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
then distribute the summation
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now break it up in to three summations \[\sum_{k=1}^n4=4n\] is the first one

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sum_{k=1}^n\frac{8k}{n}=\frac{8}{n}\sum_{k=1}^nk\] for the second do you know how to add \[\sum_{k=1}^nk\]?
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
notice that \(n\) is fixed so it comes out of the summation

I am really lost on how to do sigmas. I really appreciate the help you are giving me

\[\frac{4 n(n+1)(2n+1) }{ 6n ^{2} }\]
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the formula for \[\sum_{k=1}^nk=1+2+3+...+n=\frac{n(n+1)}{2}\]
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so the second term gives \[\frac{8}{n}\sum_{k=1}^nk=\frac{8}{n}\frac{n(n+1)}{2}=4(n+1)\]
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the last one is \[\sum_{k=1}^n\frac{4k^2}{n^2}\] and as in the previous case the \(\frac{4}{n^2}\) comes out front to give you \[\frac{8}{n^2}\sum_{k=1}^nk^2\] so what you need for this one is the formula for \[\sum_{k=1}^nk^2\] which i am going to guess you do not know, but it is probably in your book

So is it (n(n+1)(n+2))/6
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
http://polysum.tripod.com/ yes it is!
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so you get for the last term \[\frac{4}{n^2}\frac{n(n+1)(2n+1)}{6}\] oops you were off by a little
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
should be \(2n+1\) in the numerator, not \(n+2\)

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is algebra from here on in
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but one answer is \[4n+4n+1+\frac{4}{n^2}\frac{n(n+1)(2n+1)}{6}\]

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
unless of course i messed up my algebra let me check

oh damn distributive law!! \(4(n+1)=4n+4\)!!

I see now . Thank you so much for your help I really appreciate it!

here we can check what it looks like in a nice form

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=4n%2B4n%2B4%2B\frac{4}{n^2}\frac{n%28n%2B1%29%282n%2B1%29}{6} so one way to write this mess is \[\frac{2(2n+1)(7n+1)}{3n}\]
 2 years ago

satellite73 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and we can also check that it is in fact correct http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=\sum_{k%3D1}^{n}%282%2B\frac{2+k+}{+n+}%29^2
