Sequence Name | Comment 3 of 5 |
Steve H. identified the name of the sequence as "The Triangular Numbers". I would hate that fact to be lost. While our answers differed simply due to indices, he actually answered the challenge, which was to provide the name. I always learn something new here. I had to go to wikipedia to find the name origin. Interesting. So, I wondered if there are Tetrahedral Numbers, and indeed there are. They even count the total gifts in each verse of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" Thanks!
