The integral from 0 to 1 of x^2 is equivalent to the integral from 0 to 1 of the sum of the first n squares formula (x(2x+1)(x+1)/6) does anyone know if this is some special occurrence (it's only true for 0 to 1 as far as I can tell).

I guess this is only a coincidence.

I don't know, such things are likely to happen with numbers 0 and 1. - Mar 7th 2008, 06:26 AMcolby2152
Coincidence at best.
