1^3 + 2^3 + 3^3 +4^3 ... n^3 = ? 2010-01-29
From ireimaima:
Hi..
Can u please help me with this question.. I find that when i test eg: n=2 for n (n+1) /4, it seems that it does not giving me the right answer of 1^3 + 2^3 = 9 but 3/2... i'm confuse..can u please help me..thanks so much

Prove that: 1^3 + 2^3 + 3^3 +4^3..n^3 = n (n+1) /4

Prove by induction 2009-10-02
From Anonymous:
How can you prove the following by induction:

Any fraction (A / B), where 0 < (A / B) < 1, can be expressed as a finite sum
(1 / c(1)) + (1 / c(2)) + (1 / c(3)) + ... + (1 / c(k)),
where c(1), c(2), ..., c(k) are natural numbers greater than 0.

[ex. (20 / 99) = (1 / 9) + (1 / 11)]

The Principle of Mathematical Induction 2007-12-15
From iris:
we have some confusion in our problem. Please help us. We would like to know "the principle of mathematical induction"
(i) for n=1, p(1) is true.
(ii) assume that for n=k>=1, p(k) is true we have to prove p(k+1) is true. Here (Is n=k>=1 true? or Is n=k.1 true?)
Thanks.
