3900

If we combine the series we get a new series with 12,24....300
Then, Sn = 1/2 n (a1+an) {n-count ; a1 - first number, an -last number}
As 25 times 12 is 300 I took n as 25.
1/2(25)*(12+300)

3900.

Take the first series. every 4th number is the same as every third number in the second series.

For the first series, 100/4 = 25.
Second series, 80/3 = ~26.6

So they'll have 25 numbers in common. All you have to do is find the sum of these 25 numbers using the first series.

Sum = (2a + (n-1)d) * n/2
a = 12; n = 25; d = 12.

Solve to get 3900.
