To get the sum of even integers, we first need to find how many there are, which is defined as y.

60-40 = 20 / 2 = 10 + 1 = 11. There are 11 even integers from 40 to 60 inclusive.

Now let's find their sum, which we can do by multiplying the average by the number of integers. The average is 50. Therefore, their sum is 550.

x + y = 561

Sn = n/2[2a+ (n-1)d]

= 10/2[2*40 + (20-1)2]
= 5[80+38] = 590

But twice the number =1180
