# Floor series

Let denote the floor function. Evaluate the series

Solution

First of all we note that and are never squares. Thus, there exists a positive integer such that

It is easy to see that and thus we conclude that

Now is equal to the even number if-f

Hence, since the series is absolutely convergent we can rearrange the terms and by noting that the finite sums are telescopic , we get that:
