    I'm stuck on part iii of OCR FP1 June 2009 question 7. I have absolutely no idea how to relate the previous 2 parts of the question to this one, without just taking it from the formula book and scoring no marks. Can someone please explain this question to me? Thanks.

    Re-arrange the result in part(ii):

    \displaystyle 4r^3 = ((r+1)^4 - r^4) - 6r^2- 4r - 1 and then sum that.

    You know the first sum from part(i) and the other three you can quote and then simplify them all.

    That was surprisingly easier than I thought! Thank you.

    What are you having trouble with?
    How do you go from
    (N+1)^4-1 -n (n+1)(n+2) -2n(n+1) -n
    To
    N^2 (n+1)^2
    And thanks
