Sun, 01 Jan 2012 23:33:40 +0000http://messormath.wordpress.com/?p=9#comment-5The solution to this problem is as follows: we wish to make the summation equal to 300 or less. Since there are 100 terms in the summation, each term should be around 2, 3, or 4. Thus, we realize that n is approximately 100. Using some trial and error, you get when n=109, f(n)=300. Therefore, the answer is 109.
