Request for an equation.
Let me start off by saying, I am terrible at math. I'm not even sure if I know how to explain this for you to understand, but here goes.
I am trying to obtain an equation for series of numbers, with a repeating pattern.
ex. n = 4 would result in... 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23.... n = 2 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11... Thanks a lot in advance. |

f(n,x) = n + 2*n*floor(x/n) + x%n
where n is your n and x is the xth number and x=0 is the first. eg. f(4,0) = 4, f(2,2) = 6 |
