For positive integer values of N, let boxed(N) be equal to:

 

boxed(N) = 2+4+6+8+...+N if N is even,

and

boxed(N) = 2 + 4 + 6 + ... + (N - 1)  if N is odd.

 

What is the value of boxed(2009) minus boxed(2008)?

The value of \(\text{boxed}(2009) = 2+4+6+8+ \cdot \cdot \cdot + 2008 \)and the value of \(\text{boxed}(2008) = 2+4+6+8+ \cdot \cdot \cdot + 2008 \)

 

Can you take it from here?
