name 6 consecutive multiples of 5 which, when added together, make a sum between 340 and 350

  • math - ,

    345 / 6 = 57.5

    I think you can take it from there.

  • math - ,

    let the first multiple of 5 be x
    then the next 5 consecutive multiples of 5 are x+5, x+10, x+15, x+20, and x+25
    their sum is 6x+75
    then
    340 ≤ 6x+75 ≤ 350 , subtract 75 from each part
    265 ≤ 6x ≤ 275 , divide each part by 6
    44.16 ≤ x ≤ 45.8

    so the only multiple of 5 between those two value is 45

    so the numbers are 45,50,55,60, 65, and 70
