in reply to Finding sum of all digits from 1 to 1 million.

I think you may be right. I don't think the answer you have is correct. There is actualy a formula to calculate the sum of the numbers from 1-n. It is (n^2)/2 + n/2 which in the case of n=1000000 the answer is 500000500000

---If it doesn't fit use a bigger hammer

    The formula you need is:- 1/2n (n+1) N is the number. Eg (all numbers from one to ten), ten is number. So 1/2 * 10 =5 * (10+1) =55 Comes from sigma notation.....and i never got any gcses :)
