1 + 2 + 3 +…+ m = (m+1) + (m+2) +…+ n

 
 
Find all pairs in positive integers   m, \; n   such that

1 \; + \; 2 \; + \; ... \; + \; m \; = \; (m + 1) \; + \; (m + 2) \; + \; ... \; + \; n

 
For example,

1+2 \; = \; 3

1+2+3+...+14 \; = \; 105 \; = \; 15+16+17+18+19+20

1+2+3+...+84 \; = \; 3570 \; = \; 85+86+87+...+119

1+2+3+...+492 \; = \; 121278 \; = \; 493+494+495+...+696

1+2+3+...+2870 \; = \; 4119885 \; = \; 2871+2872+2873+...+4059

1+2+3+...+16730 = 139954815 = 16731+16732+16733+...+23660

1+2+3+...+97512 = 4754343828 = 97513+97514+97515+...+137903

1+2+3+...+568344 = 161507735340 = 568345+568346+568347+...+803760

1+2+3+...+3312554
    = 5486508657735 = 3312555+3312556+3312557+...+4684659

    Here are the next few, though there will be an infinite number of them. This can be reduced to solving m^2 +m = n(n+1)/2 for {m and n}

    {m->19306982,n->27304196}
    {m->112529340,n->159140519}
