first digit = 200, last digit = 400, d =2
therefore 400=200 +(n-1)2 or n =101

sum = n/2 x (first term +last term)
(101/2) x (200+400) =30300

Option C

We can use this formula: sum = average x quantity

Since we have an evenly spaced set of integers, average = (200 + 400)/2 = 300.

Since there are (400-200)/2 + 1 = 101 even integers from 200 to 400 inclusive, the sum is:

(300)(101) = 30,300

Answer: C

number of even integers !inclusive: 400-200=200/2=100+1=101
(400+200)/2*101=300300

2+4+6+8 ......+2n = n(n+1)
So sum of even number from 2 to 400 = n(n+1) = 200 (201) = 40,200
Now, we need to subtract the sum of even number from 2 to 198 = n(n+10) = 99(100) = 9,900
40,200 -9,900 = 30,300.

Here are some Formula for finite series you need memorize:

1+2+3...(n(n+1))/2

1+3+5+7....n^2

1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 + 4^2....(n(n+1)(n+2))/6

The mistake I made in this question was to assume that since the number range is mentioned between 200 & 400 inclusive, I considered the sequence from 202 instead of 200. Would appreciate clarity on whether this ideology applies when the question stem states "from" instead of between.
