102 + 104 + ... + 200
= (2 + 4 + ... + 50) + (100 + 100 + ... 50 times)
= 2550 + 50*100
= 2550 + 5000
= 7550

The sum of the first 50 positive even integers is 2,550. What is the sum of even integers from 102 to 200 inclusive?

number of terms = (200 -102)/2 + 1
Number of Terms between 102 & 200 = 50

Average (mean) = (200 + 102)/2 = 151

Sum = No. of terms * Average

Sum = 50 * 151 = 7,550
