Hey guys, I just want to share this simple things. I have found pattern of cubic number, and now I want to share it to you.

\(0^{3} = 0\)

\(1^{3} = 1\)

\(2^{3} = 8 = 3 + 5\)

\(3^{3} = 27 = 7 + 9 + 11\)

\(4^{3} = 64 = 13 + 15 + 17 + 19\)

\(5^{3} = 125 = 21 + 23 + 25 +27 + 29\)

\(6^{3} = 216 = 31 + 33 + 35 + 37 + 39 + 41\)

\(7^{3} = 343 = 43 + 45 + 47 + 49 +51 + 53 + 55\)

\(8^{3} = 512 = 57 + 59 + 61 + 63 + 65 + 67 + 69 + 71\)

\(9^{3} = 729 = 73 + 75 + 77 + 79 + 81 + 83 + 85 + 87+ 89\)

and so on and on and on !

Do you get the pattern ? Okay, any comments will be appreciated. Thank you...

\[1^{3} = 1^{2} = 1\]

\[1^{3}+2^{3} = (1+2)^{2} = 9\]

\[1^{3}+2^{3}+3^{3} = (1+2+3)^{2} = 36\]

\[1^{3}+2^{3}+3^{3}+4^{3} = (1+2+3+4)^{2} = 100\]

In general,

\[\boxed{1^{3}+2^{3}+\cdots+n^{3} = (1+2+\cdots+n)^{2}}\]

Can you figure out why this is? ;)

It should be \[1^3=1^2=1\] in first row to make it (look like) a pattern. \(\ddot\smile\)

Indeed it should, thanks for spotting that!

In boxed part, \(1^3+2^3\)

Sum of cubes = n(n+1)(n)(n+1)/4= [n(n+1)/2]^2= [Sum of the numbers]^2

Log in to reply

\(\displaystyle \sum _{ k=0 }^{ n-1 }{ \left( { n }^{ 2 }-n+1+2k \right) ={ n }^{ 3 } }\)

The cube creeps into this thing because of that first term \({ n }^{ 2 }\)

As an example, this is true also, but the sum are quartics.

\(\displaystyle \sum _{ k=0 }^{ n-1 }{ \left( { n }^{ 3 }-n+1+2k \right) ={ n }^{ 4 } }\)

In fact, for any \(a\), this is true

\(\displaystyle \sum _{ k=0 }^{ n-1 }{ \left( { n }^{ a }-n+1+2k \right) ={ n }^{ a+1 } }\)

Correct me if I am wrong. So, for \(n^{2}\) it will be

\(\sum_{k=0}^{n-1} (n+1+2k) = n^{2}\)

Log in to reply

Actually, leave out \(n\), since \({n}^{1}-n=0\), and we have the classic sum of odd numbers \(1+2k\) to make squares.

Thanks for formula for ANY power.

General term

\[ (n^2 - n + 1) + (n^2 - n + 3) + ..... + (n^2 + n -1) = n^3\]

Can you give the example please ??

what are you not able to understand , can you tell?

By the way, a good pattern and the thing I observed is There is a difference of 2 between consecutive numbers

Log in to reply

Can you explain it to me ?? For additional information for me, hehehe...

Log in to reply

Odd number means difference of 2.

Log in to reply

The cube of an integer \(n\) can be written as sum of \(n\) consecutive odd numbers, first odd number being \((n-1)^2-n\).

Log in to reply

\(\sum_{i=1}^{n} \left(n(n-1)-1+2i\right) = n\times n(n-1)-n+n(n+1) = n^3\)
