# Story of Great Mathematician:Carl Friedrich Gauss Hey Everyone here,

Today I have a Story from which I get motivation that each and every one can be a great person in the history of the world..
so here is this one …

## Mathematician: Carl Friedrich Gauss

First, Relax , sit and take a deep breathe. Erase useless thoughts from your mind. And think you are going to learn Something new and beautiful.

In elementary school in the late 1700’s, a class was asked to find the sum of the numbers from 1 to 100.  The question was assigned as “busy work” by the teacher, but one of them found the answer rather quickly by discovering a pattern.  His observation was as follows:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + … + 98 + 99 + 100

He noticed that if he was to split the numbers into two groups (1 to 50 and 51 to 100), he could add them together vertically to get a sum of 101.

1     + 2   + 3   + 4   + 5   + … + 48 + 49 + 50
100 + 99 + 98 + 97 + 96 + … + 53 + 52 + 51

1 + 100 = 101
2 + 99 = 101
3 + 98 = 101
.
.
.
48 + 53 = 101
49 + 52 = 101
50 + 51 = 101

He realised then that his final total would be 50(101) = 5050.

He was none other than “Carl Friedrich Gauss- wikipedia

Thanks to him now we have a formula S=n(n+1)/2

by this I can Analyse One Who is Curious
he/she should keep on his/her curiosity…that curiosity and hunger for knowledge will give the best result which can be an example for the others

Do remember this On Which I used to rely is …
“Always Do hard work But Honestly
Your Hard work never lets you down”.

Please give your Feedback and suggestions and also If you have any query and any Maths problem Please do comment I will try my best to resolve all your Queries.
Thank you All ,
