It's been a while since I did any real math and I figured some of you guys would know this. Today at the gym we were trying to come up with an equation that would calculate how many push-ups were done if you did a pyramid of 200. What this means is, you do 1 push up, then 2 push ups, than 3 push ups, until you do 200 in a row.
You could add it up 1+2+3+4+5+6+7 all the way up to 200, but that's no fun.
So how would you create a formula to figure this out? If this doesn't make sense it's because I'm tired and can't really think much at the moment.
