let first peson gets minimum marble = 1


second gets  minimum 2 marbles , third gets minimum 3 marbles & so on.......

now total marbles distributed  to n-1 people = k


 


k = [(n-1)/2][2+(n-2)] = n(n-1)/2


 


now , last person gets all remaining marbles ..


 


remaining marbles = total - distributed


                          = n2 - (n(n-1)/2)


                          = n(n+1)/2


this is the maximum number of marble which any 1 of them can get ...
