Suppose the sequence of nonnegative integers $a_1,a_2,...,a_{1997}$ satisfies

$a_i+a_j \le a_{i+j} \le a_i+a_j+1$

for all $i, j \ge 1$ with $i+j \le 1997$. Show that there exists a real number $x$ such that $a_n=\lfloor{nx}\rfloor$ (the greatest integer $\lenx$ (Error compiling LaTeX. ! Undefined control sequence.)) for all $1 \le n \le 1997$.


This problem needs a solution. If you have a solution for it, please help us out by adding it.
