I found this scratching away on a peice of cardboard today. I thought I might troll the board and see what people think. Bare with me for I sometimes have trouble expressing whats in my head in words.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As follows:

Take the highest whole number median of an odd integer x and multiply it by said integer and the answer is equal to the sum of the counting number integers between 1 and x included 1 and x.

Example:

Assume x = 17

Highest median of 17 = 9

9 * 17 = 153

1+2+3+4+...+15+16+17 = 153

I've also found this works for even numbers assuming median + (1/2)(or -1/2 if integer x is negative).

Its a lot of blah blah blah and I don't see any applications, perhaps even missing something blatantly obvious(it is rather late after all). Share what you think. Thanks for reading.
