Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know standard formula for 1^2+2^2+3^2+.... n^2 =... ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Sum of \(\large 1^2+2^2+3^2...n^2=\frac{(n)(n+1)(2n+1)}{6}\) If you expand this, you can prove it easily. Can you do that @maheshmeghwal9??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i mean how to expand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Multiply the terms :) \[(n)(n+1)(2n+1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok then i gt this \[3n^2+2n^3+n\]

maheshmeghwal9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok then here it is \[\frac{n^2}{2}+\frac{n^3}{3}+\frac{n}{6}.\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Obviously for positive n \[\large \frac{n^3}{3}+\frac{n^2}{2}+\frac{n}{6} > \frac {n^3}{3} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How do you conclude that it is “obvious” for a positive \(n\)? @ash2326

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\large \frac{n^2}{2}+\frac{n}{6} >0\) for n>0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then add n^3/3 on both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[n^2 + n > 0 \iff n(n + 1)>0 \iff n +1>0\iff n>1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1BUT question says that n>0 so n>1 is ignored 1,2,.........n see @ParthKohli :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But you asserted that it's true for ALL \(n\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are couple of ways you can do it ... few of them are above. Apart from that, you can also try induction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mathematical induction: \(1>\frac13\) Suppose this inequality is right for any \(n\). Try to prove it for \(n+1\): \(\sum_{i=1}^{n+1}i^2=\sum_{i=1}^{n}i^2+(n+1)^2>\frac{n^3}3+(n+1)^2=\frac{n^3}3+n^2+2n+1>\) \(>\frac{n^3}3+n^2+n+\frac13=\frac{(n+1)^3}3\) The inequality is proved for \(n+1\). So it is right for all \(n\).
