For questions about approaches and techniques for discovering a proof, as opposed to writing it down clearly (which involves (proof-writing)). Should not be used unless the focus is on the technique of the proof instead of the solution.

### Verification of identity $2\sum_{m,n\geq 1\,;\,m>n}\frac{1}{m^k n^k}=\left(\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{n^k}\right)^2 -\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{n^{2k}}$ [closed]

Is this identity true? $$2\sum_{m,n\geq 1\,;\,m>n}\frac{1}{m^k n^k}=\left(\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{n^k}\right)^2 -\sum_{n\geq 1}\frac{1}{n^{2k}}$$ If so, how to prove it? Could you provide me a ...

### Prove that $\sum_{k=0}^\infty \frac{1}{16^k} \left(\frac{120k^2 + 151k + 47}{512k^4 + 1024k^3 + 712k^2 + 194k + 15}\right) = \pi$

How to prove the following identity $$\sum_{k=0}^\infty \frac{1}{16^k} \left(\frac{120k^2 + 151k + 47}{512k^4 + 1024k^3 + 712k^2 + 194k + 15}\right) = \pi$$ I am totally clueless in this one. Would ...

### Use the division algorithm to prove that 3|(n³ + 2n) for all n ∈ ℕ

I can do it by induction, thanks to the wonderful people of this website, but I'm not sure how to do it by the Division algorithm. Can anyone help me? I think I can show how 3 divides 2n, but I'm not ...
### Show that $\Gamma_f:\mathbb{R}\to\mathbb{R}^2$ by $\Gamma_f(x)=(x,f(x))$ is continuous, with $f$ continuous.
The entire problem statement is, Let $f:\mathbb{R}\to\mathbb{R}$ be continuous. Define $\Gamma_f:\mathbb{R}\to\mathbb{R}^2$ by $\Gamma_f(x)=(x,f(x))$. Show that $\Gamma_f$ is continuous. My attempt ...
### Prove that if $a|b$ and $a|c$ then $a|(sb+tc)$ for all $s, t \in \mathbb{Z}$
Would this be the same thing as saying "Prove that if $a|b$ and $a|c$ then $a|(sb+tc)$ for any $s, t \in \mathbb{Z}$"? I can do the proof for any integers $s$ and $t$, but if any and all mean the same ...
