Use mathematical induction to prove that each proposition is valid for all positive integral values of n
1^2+3^2+5^2+...+(2n-1)^2=n(2n-1)(2n+1)/3 This is what I did
k(2k-1)(2k+1)/3 + (2k+1)^2/1
k(2k-1)(2k+1)/3 + 3(2k+1)^2/3
k(2k-1)(2k+1)/3 + 3(2k+1)(2k+1)/3 Now I am kind of stuck
Basically what I need is a formula that when n=k+1 is applied to n(2n-1)(2n+1)/3
it will give me the same result but I need to prove it.
