Hi Debanjan;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

The right answer is 40.

But I would love to get the logic which you people have derived here.

Add the numbers on the left with the number on the right for each row. You should notice something.
