This one has been answered before, just before you stopped posting the remainder. Use intersecting chord properties. The intersection could be inside or outside the circle. AB and CD are chord which intersect at O (inside or outside the circle). Then OA*OB=OC*OD

If we sum the sequence, S=&sum i, i=1,801, we have S=3²*89*401, as prime factorization. Thus the largest number of groups is 401 sets, each sum would therefore be 801, as follows: {1,800},{2,799}...{399,402},{400,401},{801} for a total of 401 sets.
