If the sum of four consecutive positive integers a three digit multiple of 50, the mean of the these integers must be one of k possible values, where k=

thinking about this the multiples of 100 don't work. the number has to be not divisible by 4 for this to work as otherwise you cannot find 4 cons digits that add up.

Yes , all these numbers can be put in the from 4n+ 6 .

(A) 7 (B) 8 (C) 9 (D) 10 (E) more than 10

Let the four integers be x,x+1,x+2 and x+3=4x+6

4x+6 has to be a multiple of 50 i.e 4x+6=50m mâ‚¬{2,3...,19}

But x=(50m-6)/4= (25m-3)/2 must be an integer, so m must be odd.

Thus m can be any odd integer from 3 to 19 3=1+1*2 19=1+9*2

So there are 9 different values for m, x and 4x+6, as well as (4x+6)/4
