Triangle numbers

by

I feel bad for not having worked on any problems since Problem 6. So here is my Mathematica solution to Problem 12.

Triangle[n_] := n (n + 1)/2;
n = 1;
While[Length[Divisors[Triangle[n]]] < 500, n++]; Print[Triangle[n]] [/sourcecode] As usual, I cheated by not programming in Python or Sage. But I figure this is better than nothing. I suspect I would get a lot more out of this programming project if I thought about how to write my own Divisors algorithm. Oh well.
