Hi again jpab29
My apologies. The formula is totally wrong!! I must have had a brain freeze. The correct formula for the sum of the squares of the first n odd numbers is:
This really can be proved by induction.
Thanks so much!
I tried to do it this way like this video:
Proof by Induction - Example 1 - YouTube
It's what I have been doing.
i can only do the left side, but not the right side.
But anyways, it's past 12midnight and it's time for me to say goodbye to this chapter of the book. I did not complete all my homework but at least I got some answered, with everyone's help. Thanks so much!
