Rectangular (or Pronic) Numbers
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 24 Mar, 2021

The numbers that can be arranged to form a rectangle are called Rectangular Numbers (also known as Pronic numbers). The first few rectangular numbers are: 
0, 2, 6, 12, 20, 30, 42, 56, 72, 90, 110, 132, 156, 182, 210, 240, 272, 306, 342, 380, 420, 462 . . . . . . 
Given a number n, find n-th rectangular number.
Examples: 
 

Input : 1
Output : 2

Input : 4
Output : 20

Input : 5
Output : 30

 

The number 2 is a rectangular number because it is 1 row by 2 columns. The number 6 is a rectangular number because it is 2 rows by 3 columns, and the number 12 is a rectangular number because it is 3 rows by 4 columns. 
If we observe these numbers carefully, we can notice that n-th rectangular number is n(n+1).
 

 



C++




// CPP Program to find n-th rectangular number
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Returns n-th rectangular number
int findRectNum(int n)
{
    return n * (n + 1);
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int n = 6;
    cout << findRectNum(n);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java Program to find n-th rectangular number
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
 
    // Returns n-th rectangular number
    static int findRectNum(int n)
    {
        return n * (n + 1);
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int n = 6;
        System.out.println(findRectNum(n));
    }
