SAMER08F - Feynman

no tags 

Richard Phillips Feynman was a well known American physicist and a recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics. He worked in theoretical physics and also pioneered the field of quantum computing. He visited South America for ten months, giving lectures and enjoying life in the tropics. He is also known for his books "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" and "What Do You Care What Other People Think?", which include some of his adventures below the equator.

His life-long addiction was solving and making puzzles, locks, and cyphers. Recently, an old farmer in South America, who was a host to the young physicist in 1949, found some papers and notes that is believed to have belonged to Feynman. Among notes about mesons and electromagnetism, there was a napkin where he wrote a simple puzzle: "how many different squares are there in a grid of N ×N squares?".

In the same napkin there was a drawing which is reproduced below, showing that, for N=2, the answer is 5.

The input contains several test cases. Each test case is composed of a single line, containing only one integer N, representing the number of squares in each side of the grid (1 ≤ N ≤ 100).

The end of input is indicated by a line containing only one zero.


For each test case in the input, your program must print a single line, containing the number of different squares for the corresponding input.

AC in one go, But it's no source of pride for a simple problem like this, Stop bragging

15 line code but good problem

AC in one go. Just observe the pattern. ;)

Perfect!!! its more about taking input :D

AC 1 GO :)

Can't the author add golang to the list of languages to be used for solving the problem ?

summation of squares

Please read the input format...made me submit 1 wrong solution

I wish I had seen the weird input pattern earlier, so 2 tries...

AC in first go! Interesting one. Use mathematical logic and observe the pattern :D
