Gauss

Help little C.F. Gauss sum all the integers from 1 to 400.

Result

s =  80200

Solution:

s=(1+400)+(2+399)+(3+398)+...= =4002(400+1)=80200s = (1+400) + (2+399) + (3+398) + ... = \ \\ = \dfrac{ 400} { 2} \cdot (400+1) = 80200



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
