The Pythagorean tradition spoke also of so-called polygonal or figurate numbers.
It's fairly large, and doesn't go past Higher arithmetic level. I've done up an XP table that goes to level 50but it took a while, and there's always the player who wants to know how hard level would be.
It takes a while to get anywhere with that rule though - a closed-form expression would be a lot more efficient. See Wikipedia for more information about combinatorics. How much XP does a 28th level epic character have?
There are also cases where you want to go in the opposite direction: This formula thanks to David Richards is even simpler: Leave the floor function off for an alternative view of how far you have progressed through a level: Hit Points A lot of game masters implement house rules for rolling hit points because players hate having their Barbarian's d12 hit die come up 1.
One popular variant is rolling again if the die comes up below half and taking the second roll. Another is rolling two hit dice and taking the highest roll.
Obviously taking the higher of 2 dice rolls is better than rerolling low rolls and potentially accepting an even worse result.
In practice however, the average result is only slightly higher using this second method over the first.Higher Arithmetic explains number theory in a way that gives deductive reasoning, including algorithms and computations, the central role. Hands-on experience with the application of algorithms to computational examples enables students to master the fundamental ideas of basic number theory.
