Here is an alternative method which doesn't require factoring a fourth degree polynomial. We start with n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3), and since the order of the factors don't matter we can say that
n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) = n(n+3)(n+1)(n+2).
Focusing on the right hand side we multiply the first and second factors as well as the third and fourth to get
n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) = (n^2+3n)(n^2+3n+2).
Which can be rewritten as
n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) = [(n^2+3n+1)-1][(n^2+3n+1)+1].
This is a difference of squares, hence
n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) = (n^2+3n+1)^2-1.

The product of 4 consecutive positive numbers is always 1 less than a perfect square. Examples:
1*2*3*4 = 5^2 -1
2*3*4*5 = 11^2 - 1
3*4*5*6 = 19^2 - 1

You're nice.

You make interesting trends like "proof", "correcting", and possibly another one.
"Interesting Fact: ...", or at least I think I can take credit for that one.

Today there were over 90K new cases, a new record. If you haven't voted yet and want covid to end soon, then vote for Biden.
