Consecutive numbersMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
Between 1000 and 2000 you can get each integer as the sum of nonnegative consecutive integers. For example,
147+148+149+150+151+152+153 = 1050
There is only one number that you cannot get.
What is this number?
HintI hope you got the power!
Only powers of 2 are not reachable, and the next number is 2048.
