A student enters the positive integers in a grid as shown below.

If we coordinatize the grid in the usual way (the lower left square is (1,1), the one to the right of it is (2,1), the one above it is (1,2), etc.),

- What is the entry in the square with coordinates (100,100)?
- What are the coordinates of the square containing 2014?

The solution will be posted shortly.
