Trapezoidal Numbers

Christopher Hartman*, Western Oregon University (Undergraduate Student)
Talk Abstract: 
Trapezoidal numbers are those which can be written as a sum of consecutive positive integers where the smallest number must be at least two. We will look at the mathematics behind trapezoidal numbers and how to find all such representations. We will give a clever construction which shows how each representation corresponds to an odd divisor of the number.
