What are you talking about Tetrahedral Numbers? 2024 is the 22nd number in the sequence (if you don't count 0).
I am referring to this: http://www.mathematische-basteleien.de/triangularnumber.htm
I see. I always knew that as a "consecutive sum." Easy formula for that (which I figured out years ago on my own) is to multiply the final number by half of one more than the final number. Like if the final number is 4, the sum is 10, which is equal to 4 times 2 and a half, which is half of 5.
I see, so if the final number was 6, you would do 6 x 3.5 to get 21, which is 1+2+3+4+5+6. I admire that you have managed to figure this out on your own.
Error. 7x4 =28. 4 being half of one more than 7. It works indefinitely.
This is correct. I had misplaced the .5 in 3.5.
I was under a strange impression that the moon cycle was 3.5 x 7, not 8. This is precisely what threw me off despite that I had long known that 3.5 is 3+5 = 8, hence the moon cycle is governed by the "88", such as the 88 constellations and the 88 piano keys. Furthermore, 88 translates to "Two Eights", which is why the moon cycle has 28 phases and the mother's menstruation cycle has 28 phases as well (Blood Moon).
To reiterate the below statement, let's do it for 63. One more than 63 is 64. Half of 64 is 32. 63x32 =2016.
That 32 you are multiplying with the 63rd Tetrahedral is computer code made out of 8+8+8+8.
This is why 12 / 3 = 4 & 56 / 7 = 8. Notice how the basic number sequence happens to divide perfectly into each other, giving us the complete sum of "48"? 48 translates to "Four Eights": 8888.
32 x 32 x 32 = 32768. 768 / 32 = 24. 24 + 24 = 48, again.
