smallest sum is 10, largest sum of 600

since all possible sums between are possible,

all we have to do is find which term number 600 is

of the arithmetic sequence with

term1 = 10 , d = 1, term(n) = 600

a + (n-1)d = term(n)

10 + n-1 = 600

n-1 = 590

n = 591

There are 591 different sums possible.
