**Steve**, Monday, August 6, 2012 at 4:32amassume true for n=k. Then when n=k+1, we have

2+4+...+2k+(2k+2) = k^2 + k + 2k+2

= k^2 + 2k + 1 + k + 1

= (k+1)^2 + (k+1)

Since true for n=1, true for n=2,3,4...

Similarly,

8+10+...+(2k+6)+(2k+8) = k^2 + 7k + (2k+8)

= k^2 + 2k + 1 + 7k + 7

= (k+1)^2 + 7(k+1)
