1^2+2^2+3^2…..+ 999^2 . How to put this sum in the simple mathematic formula? Since, only 999^2 = 998001and imagine total sum: + 998^2 + 997^2 + 996^2 + ... + 1. I hope that now is more clear what I actually need. Thanks a lot!

I've given you the formula for the sum of the squares of the first 999 natural numbers...ie

If I say any more I will be giving you the answer..is that what you are wanting me to do?

Do you think that this assignment is finished if I accept this and moreover if my teacher accept it? Is there more mathematic approach and more predictable the final result of this “quadratic” sum? Since first sum (1+2+3+…+999) is more clear how to reach the final result!

Sorry, but I really don't understand what you are trying to say.

I'll leave you with this..

if I wanted

I would use the formula with to get

Now, it's OK. I understood. It sounds very simple. Thanks a lot. This is great way of communication and very quick tool for maths problem solving! Be in touch. Regards
