Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Been a looooong time since I had to use calculus for anything, but I distinctly remember failing this section of the course miserably. I can describe a pattern but for the life of me I can't write an equation that describes the pattern I see.

For a program I'm wrtting for work I need to write an equation that will describe the following pattern:

If n = 1 to 93 then x = 1

(diff = 92)

If n = 94 to 183 then x = 2

(diff = 89)

If n = 184 to 276 then x = 3

(diff = 92)

If n = 277 to 366 then x = 4

(diff = 89)

and so on and so forth...

ANy help would be greatly appriciated. I know it's possible to write a sigma equation to describe this sort of pattern, but like I said I failed this section of my calculus course miserably! Never thought I'd actually use it again!
