    Conversion would be ...

    \sum ^{n}_{i=1} 3^i=\frac{3^{(n+1)}-3}{2}

    There are numerous on-line examples of the proof of sums of geometric progressions by induction.

    No induction can also be used for heating things up very quickly. I think the connection is that those crazy formulas heat up the gray-matter just as efficiently, and hence must be caused by the same fundamental effect. :p
