this is to figure out formula for how many squares you can find in a nxn box.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1^{2}+2^{2}+3^{2}+.....+N^{2}

Can someone show steps to how a simplified formula can be found? ( i only know the concept of induction, not how to do it really..)

it is (n)(n+1)(2n+1)/6 , but how is this accomplished

thanks a lot, would be great if some work was shown.
