Hi;

There are 6 ways for 120 and 2 ways for 2013.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Hi;

As far as I know there is no known formula for these problems. The latest work only provides a bound, not an exact answer. These had to be computed for both numbers.

Hi;

Unless I am misunderstanding their paper they have only established an upper bound for

n >= 2r

this is almost useless for your question.
