Fun trick I learned for adding consecutive numbers (1 to 100, in this case). You find the average of the largest and smallest numbers added together, then just multiply the average by the numbers of terms in the sequence. So, in this case, add the smallest and largest (1+100=101), and find their average (50.5). Multiply that by the total number of terms (100, in this case). So 50.5 x 100 = 5050.

Ah, that's another way to do it. I just knew that 0+100=100, 1+99=100, ..., 49+51=100, so that's 50 terms that equal 100, so that's 5000 plus the 50 that was left over.

I did this by the AP formula : n/2[2a+(n–1)d], where 'a' is the first number of the AP, 'd' is the difference between the numbers, and 'n' is the amount of numbers in the AP

I hope you know where the formula comes from! It comes from the description given above, only with the first term (a) and the last term (a + (n-1)d) re-written.

@roleybob why, if someone reads the question correctly, there is allways someone that feels the need to put them down and called them pedantic. (In SOME cases people are being too difficult, but sometimes the question is really asking for something else, where it isnt obvious that a generalisation is used for instant. Like weight and mass, obviously not the same, but you know what is meant)

Isn't the answer 4949 since it says the numbers BETWEEN 1 and 100. That means that 1 and 100 are excluded otherwise the question should be What is the sum of the numbers between 0 and 101.

Ecuador should probably also be accepted for the South of Panama question. Dropping down on a map, you'd reach Ecuador.
