XCas> S(a,n) := simplify(sum((a+x)^3, x=0..n1)) XCas> factor(S(c(n1)/2,n)) → n*c*(4*c^2+n^21)/4 Again, any "central element" work, with differences back to S(a,n) XCas> simplify(S(c,a+nc)  S(c,ac)  S(a,n)) → 0 Redo previous example, using simple sumofncubes formula (c=1) S = 33³ + 40³ + 47³ + 54³ + 61³ + 68³ = 7³ * ((33/7)³ + (33/7+1)³ + ... + (68/7)³) = \(7^3 \left(\binom{75/7}{2}^2  \binom{33/7}{2}^2) \right)\) = \(\Large{(75×68)^2  (33×26)^2 \over 7×4}\) = 902637
