Get this: every odd number that is added up to equal a certain number that is squared will hold true.

Here it is written out:
_________________________

+1  +3  +5  +7   +9   +11

1   4   9   16   25   36

1^2 2^2 3^2 4^2  5^2  6^2
_________________________

Now, I want to know why these values equal the same numbers (i.e. 9 = 1+3+5 = 3^2, 36 = 1+3+5+7+9+11 = 6^2)
