Is there a simple formula for this?

0, 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45, 55, 66, 78, 91, 105, 120, 136, 153, 171, 190, 210, 231, 253, 276, 300, 325, 351, 378, 406, 435, 465, 496, 528, 561, 595, 630, 666, 703, 741, 780, 820, 861, 903, 946, 990, 1035, 1081, 1128, 1176, 1225, 1275, 1326, 1378, 1431

Search on Trianglular numbers on Google.

[k(k+1)]/2 is the general formula.

k=1 gives (1*2)/2=1

k=2 gives (2*3)/2=3

k=10 (10*11)/2 = something you can do.

k=20 (20*21)/2 = something you can do.

k=100 (100*101)/2 = something you can do.

Prove the formula by induction.
