This page is dedicated to mathematical amusements of all sorts, and to problems I find that are intriguing because they seem counter-intuitive or have an unexpected solution. For example:
The puzzler works like this: There is a math question posted below for you to puzzle over. When you have an answer, send it to me in an email. If your answer is right, I'll send you back a code to let you access the next puzzler in the series.
I'll keep extending the series of puzzles as I find or invent new ones, but I'll maintain a list of people who have solved any puzzles, and post a "hall of fame" for those who have solved the most.
13 + 23 + 33 + ... + n3 = (1 + 2 + 3 + ... + n)2for all positive integers
Submit your answer and your method here. Be sure to include the puzzler number, your name, and your email address.
