Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.Umm.You know the link in 'introduction' about triangular numbers.Unfortunately I don't understand what it meant.Sorry!Can you help me. Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #2 20060307 04:59:01

Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #4 20060307 05:37:39
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.Can you give me some link to this page. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #5 20060307 06:31:22
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.I don't know how but go to introductions then to the topic made by fgarb.Ganesh put in a link to it Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #6 20060307 07:26:50
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.It seems clear to me. I can't only understand the "simplex" thingy, but I will. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #7 20060307 14:24:04
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.Maybe it would help to start with something simple  do you understand what they are? #9 20060307 17:43:41
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.She may understand the first part of the page but she won't understand the equations with binomials. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #10 20060307 18:53:13
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.A figurate number is a number that can be represented by a regular geometrical arrangement of equally spaced points. If the arrangement forms a regular polygon, the number is called a polygonal number. The polygonal numbers forming a triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon etc. are called triangular, square, pentagonal, and hexagonal numbers, respectively. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #11 20060308 03:43:33
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.I get the first bit of the link and I know the basics but I REALLY don't want to draw a triangle made of 100 rows.I want to find the 100th tri no. My dad said its 5050 and if I use ganesh's formula I get the same answer but somewhere it said n(n1)/2 and I got 4950.I don't really know which one is right.Which one? Presenting the Prinny dance.

Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.Espeon, I have a story you might find interesting: She wrote down the answer and turned her quiz in. It took the other students more than an hour to finish, but Janet was done in ten minutes, and she was the only person who got the right answer  everyone else made a mistake adding all those numbers together. You might notice that this technique could work for any triangular number, not just 500. Let's say you're looking for the Nth triangle number. Then, This works for all triangle numbers. If you plug in N = 500, you'll get Janet's formula! #14 20060308 17:05:24
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.Good explanation fgarb. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #15 20060309 03:35:58
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.I think the person in fgarb's story was Gauss. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #16 20060309 04:46:51

Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.Cool story, fgarb!!! I never heard of that double backwards method; it is beautiful!! igloo myrtilles fourmis #18 20060318 03:25:46
Re: Umm,Ganesh.Help me please.I also thought of this slightly different way too, fgarb!! igloo myrtilles fourmis #19 20060319 02:43:50
