Almost equal (Posted on 2011-04-01) Difficulty: 1 of 5
Integers equal to each other or differing by 1 will be called "almost equal " within the contents of this problem.

In how many ways can 2011 be expressed as a sum of almost equal addends?
The order of the addends in the expression is immaterial.

Solution: (Hide)
For each number of addends from 1 to 2011 there is exactly one way to do it, so the answer is 2011. If we diregard the trivial case of 1 addend i.e. 2011=2011 , then the answer is 2010.
