Number of integers = 60-50+1 = 11
Sum of integers = 11/2[100+10] = 55*11 = 605
Difference = 605-11 = 594

D is the answer.

IMO D ie 594

The number of integers 50-60( both inclusive) is 11
The sum of integers 50-60 (both inclusive) is 605
Therefore the difference in the sum of integers and the number of integers is 605-11=594.

The number of integers from 50 to 60, inclusive, is 60 - 50 + 1 = 11.

To find the sum of these integers, we first find the average of the 11 integers and then multiply the result by 11 (the number of integers in the set).

The average of the integers from 50 to 60, inclusive, is:

(lowest + highest)/2 = (50 + 60)/2 =110/2 = 55
The sum of the integers from 50 to 60, inclusive, is:

average x number = 55 x 11 = 605

So the difference is 605 - 11 = 594.
