The value of (-11)+(-12)+(+13)+ --------(-110) is :

we can use some statistics theory here:
average: (-11+(-110))/2=(-121/2)
number of items: (110-11+1)=100
multiply the two:
-121*50
-6050

Any set that is evenly spaced has average=median

6.67%

Assume he spent a total of Tk.1500 on each lots
Dozens of the first lots=1500/300= 5
Dozens of the second lots=1500/500=3
Total Dozens for both lots= 3+5=8
Total cp for both lot= 8(150+150)=3000
Total sp for both=8×400=3200
Profit= (3200-3000)/3000)×100= 6.67%

(X/6) +(x+2/4)+(x+4/7)= 38
X=66
X+2=68
X+4=70
The numbers are 66,68,70
