Is it factfact oror fictionfiction ?

Is there any relation between both the given facts or this is coincidence : sum of nn natural numbers i.e. n(n+1)2\frac { n(n+1) }{ 2 } and (n+12){n+1 \choose 2}

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Yes There is relation between both If n(n+1)/2n When we have to find mean Then its equal to n+1/2

@Sharky Kesa Yeah, I know. But he's looking for a reason aside from the coincidence, like a geometric or combinatorial proof. :P

If you factor n+1n+1 choose 22 you get n(n+1)2!\dfrac{n(n+1)}{2!}.

oh! according to my knowledge 2!2!==22 so what is the relation between the two

Imagine the first one in a line of (n+1) persons saying "Hello" to all the n, second saying to remaining (n-1), third to rest of (n-2) and so on till the last but one says "Hello' to the last one. Total number of "Hello' is a combination term, 2 out of (n+1) as each and every pair said "Hello", which is also the sum of first n natural numbers.
