Hello,

If I feed Mathematica with the following expression

*>>> Sum[i == j, {i, 1, n}, {j, 1, n}]

*then nothing happens : it is not able to evaluate the expression.  But 
if I set

*>>> **n = 100*

and then feed

*>>> **Sum[i == j, {i, 1, n}, {j, 1, n}]

*again, then I receive

*>>> **9900 False + 100 True*

Is it possible to obtain

*>>> **False (-1 + n) n + n^2 True*

when I feed the above sum?

Thanks,

Benoît Frénay
