Find a Missing Number From a Sequence of Consecutive Numbers
Objective: You have been asked to write an algorithm to Find a Missing Number From a Sequence of Consecutive Numbers
Input: Array, arrA[] with a missing number and Range
Output: missing number
Approach:
 The approach is very simple, Add all the given numbers say S
 Calculate the sum of N numbers by formula n(n+1)/2, say N
 Find missing number m = NS
Example : suppose array given is {1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10} and range is 10.
So N will be sum of 1 to 10 = 10(10+1)/2 = 55
S will be the sum of all the array elements which is = 48
So missing number will be = 5548 = 7
