Question: Find the difference between the sum of the first 600 multiples of 3 and the sum of the first 600 odd numbers. Solve and show all work. Do not just input numbers into the calculator. HOw in the world do you solve something with such a wide range of numbers? pris par-that is considered cheating. we have to use some sort of method to solve this and arent supposed to use a calculator The Hints are good but thats gonna take a long time to solve that way :( Any shorter strategies?

The hint given was good. Look at the first few and see if you see a pattern. (3 - 1) + (6 - 3) +(9 -5) + (12 -7) = 2 + 3 + 4 + 5... There is a formula for finding the sum of numbers (n^2+n)/2 where n is your high number. Don't forget that you are starting at 2 though.

I agree, do your possess work. It is rather clear that there's no effort. Aside from you no longer attempting or showing us your attempt, you don't even tell us which query you haveh attempted so we know what illustration to not put down. Oh, yeah. There's anything called Google. When you consider that Y!A requires us to check out an reply the question ... What's the on zero greenbacks for zero hours at a price of 0% curiosity? There is my strive. Amity
Hint: How would you find the sum of the first 600 multiples of 3 ?? and what is the difference between them ??

Input all multiples of three in your calculator (3x6x9...) then input all odd (1x3x5...) then subtract one number from the other... Its not brain science
