Need Formula Help
I am trying to make a formula that adds the amount at 200 and then the amount if it double and triples without a limit. Example: 1=200 /2 = 200+400/ 3 = 200+400+600/ 4 = 200+400+600+800 / 5 = 200+400+600+800+1000/ 6 = 200+400+600+800+1000+1200 If they enter in A1 the number 4 then in C1 then answer should be 2000 If they enter in A1 the number 6 then in C1 the answer should be 4200 Can anyone HELP ME PLEASE  kidd  kidd's Profile: http://www.excelforum.com/member.php...o&userid=15799 View this thread: http://www.excelforum.com/showthread...hreadid=200316

Hi, kidd. You are describing an arithmetic series in the form of
n*(n+1)*100. So if the value n is in cell A1, then the formula in C1 would be =A1*(A1+1)*100.

What you have are describing is (the sum of digits from 1 to N) * 200.
The equation for the sum of the digits is (N+1)*N/2. The logic is very clever. Create pairs by selecting 2 numbers from the original N values, but don't do it at random: do it by pairing 1 with N, 2 with N  1, 3 with N  2, etc. Note that the sum of each pair is N + 1 (e.g. 5 + N  4 = N + 1) So, if you know how many pairs there are, the total is (N+1) * number of pairs. The number of pairs = N/2. So the sum of the digits from 1 through N, inclusive is (N+1)*N/2 If you put N in cell C1, the formula for A1 is =200*C1/2*(1+C1) On Wed, 27 Oct 2004 19:38:04 0500, kidd wrote: I am trying to make a formula that adds the amount at 200 and then the amount if it double and triples without a limit.
