There are 21 integers from 40 to 60 (inclusive). Of these, 11 are even (=y), and their mean is 50. 50*11 = 550 = x. So x+y = 550+11=561, the correct answer is d).

Average value - (40 + 60)/2 = 50

Number of intergers between 40 and 60 (inclusive) = 60 - 40 + 1 = 21

Since we are counting even integers with 40 inclusive there are 11 even integers...

so the total is 50 * 11 + 11 = 561
