## Highly divisible triangular number

### Problem 12

Published on Friday, 8th March 2002, 06:00 pm; Solved by 130171; Difficulty rating: 5%The sequence of triangle numbers is generated by adding the natural numbers. So the 7^{th} triangle number would be 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 28. The first ten terms would be:

1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28, 36, 45, 55, ...

Let us list the factors of the first seven triangle numbers:

1: 13: 1,36: 1,2,3,610: 1,2,5,1015: 1,3,5,1521: 1,3,7,2128: 1,2,4,7,14,28

We can see that 28 is the first triangle number to have over five divisors.

What is the value of the first triangle number to have over five hundred divisors?
