Sum of numbers from 1 to 1000
This is far from a tricky question. It is the simplest math:
Sum(n) = n(n+1)/2
That is it. Schoolbook formula.

Heh. Euler was a pretty cool.
Basically, i would think that being able to answer this questions proves that you were paying attention in precalc or calculas I. :)
And yes, a math problem solving background (pure math or physics or engineering) really helps a developer IMHO ...

But the formula is n(n1)/2, not n+1.
