Hey,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am kinda new here but heres a problem for you guys:

There is an equation of the form:

((1)^k)+((2)^k)+......+((n-1)^k)+((n)^k) = ((n+1)^k)

This equation is such that all the numbers starting from1 till n are raised to the power of k and added and the result is (n+1)^k. What should n and k be?

Apart from ((1)^2) + ((2)^2) = ((3^2)) There isnt any other obvious answer. ( These were the first numbers I tried when I began trying to solve this problem.
