The N + 1 term in the numerator comes from Sum(1$^{2}$, n = 0, n = N).
Now 1$^{2}$ = 1, and the summation is 1 + 1 + 1 + ... + 1, or (N + 1) terms that are all 1, so the value of the summation is N + 1. If that's confusing, pick a value for N and see what you get.

It's the basic counting from zero thing. 1-10 has 10 counts, but 0-10 has 11.
