Here's a little challenge for you guys.

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)
