I need some help in trying to prove the following identity $$\sum_{k = 1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{(2k)^{2}} + \sum_{k=1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{(2k+1)^{2}} = \sum_{k = 1}^{\infty} \frac{1}{k^{2}}$$

I'm not sure where to start really. I thought it was going to be as simple as just adding the two terms together but nothing comes of that....

Just split the sum in RHS into the part where $k$ is even and the part where $k$ is odd.
