So I'm trying to find a closed form for a series (going from 1 to n, for any n > 0). I'm a computer science student only, so my mathematical background is limited in this case.
Anywho, here is how far I've managed to get:
Getting to this point took me a little over two hours, but now I've been staring at this and really don't know where to go from here. Any help is appreciated. Thanks! :)
PS: I notice the pattern that appears => 1(1) + 2(1+2) + 3(1+2+3) + ... + n(1+2+3+...+n), but I'm not sure what to extrapolate from there on.
Edit: removed the equals sign. It probably shouldn't have been there in the beginning.
