# Sequence Generalization Proof

I have recently, been experimenting with numerical sequences, one of which were inspired by t​his problem. Please view the following work which I have conducted to arrive at my proof. Images are attached.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
• Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Nice Observation and theorem. You can establish if no has yet and you should try to have a proof and try it with large numbers because maybe they can act as counter examples.

Thank you for the kind reply! Unfortunately, I'm not quite sure the process of a formal proof, or how to establish. It would be great if you could elaborate. Thanks!

Well i am sorry to say that what your trying to prove is not a theorem but just common properties. This is because your stating that n^2-k=n+k which can be written as n^2-n=2k or n(n-1)/2=k. Which is nothing but mere division and nothin else.
