Given an integer **N**, the task is to find the count of **0s** in an **N-level** hexagon.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 2

Output:7

Input:N = 3

Output:19

**Approach:** For the values of **N = 1, 2, 3, …** it can be observed that a series will be formed as **1, 7, 19, 37, 61, 91, 127, 169, …**. It’s a difference series where differences are in AP as **6, 12, 18, …**.

Therefore the **N ^{th}** term of will be 1 + {6 + 12 + 18 +…..(n – 1) terms}

= 1 + (n – 1) * (2 * 6 + (n – 1 – 1) * 6) / 2

= 1 + (n – 1) * (12 + (n – 2) * 6) / 2

= 1 + (n – 1) * (12 + 6n – 12) / 2

= 1 + (n – 1) * (6n) / 2

**= 1 + (n – 1) * (3n)**

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ implementation of the approach ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to return the count of ` `// 0s in an n-level hexagon ` `int` `count(` `int` `n) ` `{ ` ` ` `return` `3 * n * (n - 1) + 1; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `n = 3; ` ` ` ` ` `cout << count(n); ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
