denise,
you need to show the following steps:
n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3)/4 + (n+1)(n+2)(n+3) = [n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) + 4(n+1)(n+2)(n+3)]/4
factoring (n+1)(n+2)(n+3) in the numerator, we get the desired expression (n+1)(n+2)(n+3)(n+4)/4.

Need to show by induction: 1*2*3+2*3*4+...n*(n+1)*(n+2)=n*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3)/4. Please help!!!!!! Email me at DCamillo@aol.com, Thanks.
