When the Concatenation of n || (n+1) is triangular

 
 
Solving

x \; || \; (x + 1)   is a triangular number

10^{n} \; x \; + \; (x + 1) \; = \; y \,(y + 1)/2,        n \; \geq \; 1

4 Responses to When the Concatenation of n || (n+1) is triangular

  1. paul says:

    There is an unusual pattern amongst these numbers, there always seems to be many more solutions when the integer length of x is 9, in other words 18 digit concatenated numbers. for all types of number i.e. square, triangular, pentagonal, octagonal… … up to hexagonal type numbers. and the hexagonal numbers are the first that do not have a 20 digit solution.

    Paul.

      Hexagonal numbers: n*(2*n-1)
      when integer length of x is 9
      (10^9 + 1)*x + 1 = y*(2*y-1)
      when integer length of x is 10
      (10^10 + 1)*x + 1 = y*(2*y-1)

      lots of solutions

      And (10^n + 1)*x, n ≥ 9 ( I have checked for n up to 20 and for Triangular,Pentagonal,Hexagonal,Heptagonal,Octagonal and Nonagonal

    Sorry I meant to say octagonal numbers, have no 20 digit solutions, (x=10). y(3y -2) type.
