# Program to find N-th term of series a, b, b, c, c, câ€¦in C++

In this problem, we are given a number N. Our task is to create a Program to find N-th term of series a, b, b, c, c, c…in C++.

## Problem Description

To find the Nth term of the series −

**a, b, b, c, c, c, d, d, d, d,....Nterms **

We need to find the general term of the series.

**Let’s take an example to understand the problem,**

Input

N = 7

Output

d

## Solution Approach

To find the general term of the series, we need to closely observe the series. The series has 1 a, 2 b’s, 3 c’s, 4 d’s,... This seems to be an AP. And the Nth term is the sum of AP which a and d both 1.

Sum of AP = Nth Term = (n/2)(a+(n-1)d).

The n specifies which character is the Nth term.

Now, lets derive the value of n,

Nth Term = (n/2)*(1 + (n-1)*1) (n/2)*(1 + n - 1) (n/2)*n

$\sqrt{2\square^2}$

## Example

#include <iostream> #include <math.h> using namespace std; char findNTerm(int N) { int n = sqrt(2*N); return ((char)('a' + n)); } int main() { int N = 54; cout<<N<<"th term of the series is "<<findNTerm(N); return 0; }

## Output

54th term of the series is k
