    While I very much appreciate your efforts and admire your enthusiasm, I would also say the same thing. Eg
    I posted that after OP understood what he had to do and where he went wrong, I simply reassured him. Is that so bad?

    Oh no, in that case it's fine and apologies - I should have looked at the context more closely.

    He still replied with confusion, so... I think you were a bit quick on the trigger there. In the future, you might want to make sure the OP actually understands what's going on before posting a solution.

    He literally posted "ok ok i understand that i should add k+1 and when i do i can take out a factor of 0.5xk+1 and k+1+1" so it was safe to assume he got it because that's the end answer. The question he replied back with concerned the split of the sum. I believe this was a slightly different query from his original one so don't think I was quick on the trigger.
