@Calvin Lin How developing it further,sir? Anandmay Patel · 5 days, 11 hours ago

@Anandmay Patel Here is how I would go about developing the page further

  1. List out various problems that use the identity - Example 1, Example 2, Example 3, etc

  2. Once we have several good examples, start to categorize them. E.g. Showing that a number is composite, Solving diophantine equations, Telescoping series, finding large prime divisors, etc

  3. See if each category makes sense / is useful. If it is, see if a beginner can easily understand how to approach it, otherwise add a more basic example.
