## Main Question or Discussion Point

I was reading book on numbers and it had an equation for

1^2+2^2+3^2+4^2+5^2...

but I worked out the equation several times with different integers and they didn't appear to work at all. Does anyone know the equation for finding the total sum if the base sum (such as 5 above) is known?
