[itex](1+2+3+ \cdots + n)^2 = 1^3 + 2^3 + 3^3 + \cdots + n^3 , n \ge 1[/itex]

Provide a derivation of the identity above.

I do not know how to begin this problem. I tried to use induction but did not succeed. Also, I honestly do not know what it means by provide a derivation of the identity. Please do not give me the answer, I just need a helping hand in getting started.
