By Evan13, history, 4 weeks ago, A pattern can be seen in the solution that the result will be equal to (n/2)*m . May be I am missing any mathematical concept behind this reason. Can anyone provide me the mathematical logic behind the solution? Why is this working? Comments (4)
 » 4 weeks ago, # | ← Rev. 4 →   lets take an example for n=12 and m=3.So 1,2,3,7,8,9 will have -ve sign and 4,5,6,10,11,12 will have positive signNow if you look carefully you can see that a n/2 pairs consisting of one +ve and one -ve numbers are formed such that their addition is equal to mhere,4 — 1 = 35 — 2 = 36 — 3 = 310 — 7 = 3 11 — 8 = 312 — 9 = 3Therefore n/2 pairs will be formed having sum of both numbers as m. Hence the answer is (n/2)*m
