The sum of the integers from 30 to 50 is $$x=\frac{first \ term+ last \ term}{2}*# \ of \ terms=\frac{30+50}{2}*21=40*21=840$$;

The number of even integers from 30 to 50 is $$y=\frac{50-30}{2}+1=11$$ (check this: totally-basic-94862.html);

x+y=840+11=851.

I will use AP:

Sum = n/2[2a+(n-1)d) = 21/2[2*30+20*1] = 840 = sum from 30- 50
Number of even terms from 30 -50 are 11.
so total = 240+11 =251
Hope this helps

21 integers from 30 to 50 inclusive

so 11th integer is mean, it is 40

21*40=840

from 21 integers 11 ones is even

840+11=851

E

Hi Bunuel how do you calculate no. of terms(i.e 21). By counting or is there any method. Counting no. of terms in given range or no. of hours have always been a problem for me. i always count which consumes a lot of time.

How many integers are from x to y inclusive? y - x + 1.
For example, how many integers are from 2 to 7 inclusive? 7 - 2 + 1 = 6. Namely, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7.

How many integers are from x to y NOT inclusive? y - x - 1.
For example, how many integers are from 2 to 7 NOT inclusive? 7 - 2 - 1 = 4. Namely, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

21*(30+50)/2=840

(50-30)/2=10+1=11
