1+2..+100+…+1 , this was intimidating to begin with. But then from the odd integer add example, I thought it was the square shape that you focused on. And as I started putting in dots I saw a right angle shape forming and voila., that is from 1 till 100 and then the remaining 1+..99 will be an inverted right angle triangle, eventually making a 10x10 ..voo hoo..I even checked in excel to confirm.. overnight i am a mathematician :)

can you provide any pointers where to get exposed to such oxfordian thought process?
