In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: What do you think?

New problem:

If the even numbers are grouped in the following way

term #1 {2,4}
term #2 {6,8,10}
term #3 {12,14,16,18,20}
term #4 {22,24,26,28,30,32,34}
term#5  {36,38,40,42,44,46,48,50,52,54,56}
.
.
.

what is your best guess for the sum of all the even numbers in term #1000000?

Hi Bobby,

I let M do the guessing for me...which freed up several years of my time.
