From what I can see, you pick $i = 3$ so there is no question of a summation starting with $j = i + 1$

what do you mean ? Can you explain further ?

### BvU

I can not. It is a matter of you carefully reading what's printed. Write out the $i, j, k$ of the summations in full. The one in the blue frame is empty when $i = 3$: it is a non-starter (there is no $j = 4$).
