Q90) There is a house in Mumbai such that the sum of house numbers on one side is equal to that of the other side .There are more than 50 houses but less than 500 . What is the house number?

Let there be y houses and x be the house no we r looking for
now sum of no on one side of house(x) is 1 + 2 + ... + (x1) = (x  1)x/2
and sum of houses on other side of house = y(y+1)/2  x(x+1)/2
equate both
simplify n u get x^2=y(y+1)/2
multiplying both sides by 8
(2y+1)^2 = 8x^2 +1
let 2y+1 =p and 2x=1
so p^2  2q^2 = 1
this can be solved using pell number
soln will be square triangular no between 50^2 and 500^2
41616 is only such no
so x = root 41616 = 204
and y = 288
