Sum = average x quantity

Average: (140+100)/2=120
Quantity: 140-100=40... we add 1 to get 40+1=41 considering we have an inclusive set.

Sum: 120 x 41= 4,920.

Let sum X=100+101+....+139+140
Also Sum X= 140+139...+101+100 (the same thing)
2x =(240+240..+240) —> adding 240,n times
Where n= count= (140-100)+1=41
Now 2x=240*n —> x=240/2*41 =
x=120*41 =4920
Ans.E

two ways to solve this question:

method 1:
total no of terms ; 140-100+1 = 41
d=1
a=100
s41=41/2 + (2*100+ (41-1)*1)
s41 = 4920
IMO E

method 2 :
since the terms are consective so mean = median = avg
so avg = last term+ first term /2 = 140+100/2 = 120

no of terms = 41
sum = 120*41 = 4920
IMO E

Let 140 is tn term of series [100,140]
140= 100 + (n-1)*1
n= 41

Sum= (41/2){200 + 40*1} = (41*240)/2 = E. 4920
