Find a formula for when m [tex]\sum[/tex] k=0 the flooring function of[k^{1/3}] ,m is a positive integer.

2. Relevant equations

n[tex]\prod[/tex] j=m a_{j}

3. The attempt at a solution

the flooring function of[k^{1/3}] = K

the summation of K is [tex]\frac{m(m+1)}{2}[/tex]

There's a table of useful summation formulas in the Discrete Mathematics and Its Application sixth edition textbook pg.157 and that's where I got the summation formula for K. Just plug in m in the formula for the summation of K.
