What is the value of the sum of a sequence of x consecutive even integers?

(1) x = 5
(2) The least integer in the sequence is 6

Target question: What is the sum of a sequence of x consecutive even integers?

Statement 1: x = 5
We don't know where the sequence starts. For example:
Case a: the 5 numbers are {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, in which case the sum = 30
Case b: the 5 numbers are {4, 6, 8, 10, 12}, in which case the sum = 40
Since we cannot answer the target question with certainty, statement 1 is NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The least integer in the sequence is 6
We don't know how many integers are in the sequence. For example:
Case a: the numbers are {6, 8}, in which case the sum = 14
Case b: the numbers are {6, 8, 10}, in which case the sum = 24
Since we cannot answer the target question with certainty, statement 2 is NOT SUFFICIENT

Statements 1 and 2 combined
We now know that the numbers are {6, 8, 10, 12, 14}, in which case the sum = 50
Since we can answer the target question with certainty, the combined statements are SUFFICIENT

Cheers,
Brent
