Number of cells in the Nth order figure
  • Last Updated : 31 Oct, 2019

Given an integer N, the task is to find the number of cells in Nth order figure of the given type:

Examples:

Input: N = 2
Output: 5

Input: N = 3
Output: 13

Approach: It can be observed that for the values of N = 1, 2, 3, … a series will be formed as 1, 5, 13, 25, 41, 61, 85, 113, 145, 181, … whose Nth term will be N2 + (N – 1)2.



Below is the implementation of the above approach:

// Function to return the number

// figure of the given type
int cntCells(int n)
{
    int cells = pow(n, 2) + pow(n - 1, 2);
    return cells;
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 3;
  
    cout << cntCells(n);
  
    return 0;
