# Find the sum of all integers between 100 and 550 which are not divisible by 9.

Given:

Integers between 100 and 550, which are not divisible by 9.

To do:

We have to find the sum of all integers between 100 and 550, which are not divisible by 9.

Solution:

Sum of the integers between 100 and 550, which are not divisible by 9 $=$ Sum of the integers between 100 and 550 $-$ Sum of the integers between 100 and 550, which are divisible by 9

Integers between 100 and 550 are $101,102,103, \ldots, 549$.

The sequence is in A.P.

Here,

$a=101$ and $d=102-101=1$ $l=549$

We know that,

$l=a+(n-1) d$

$\Rightarrow 549=101+(n-1) \times 1$

$\Rightarrow 549=101+n-1$

$\Rightarrow 549-100=n$

$\Rightarrow n=449$

$\mathrm{S}_{n}=\frac{n}{2}[2 a+(n-1) d]$

$=\frac{449}{2}[2 \times 101+(449-1) \times 1]$

$=\frac{449}{2}[202+448 \times 1]$

$=\frac{449}{2}(202+448)$

$=449 \times 325$

$=145925$

Integers between 100 and 550, which are divisible by 9 are $108,117,126, \ldots, 549$.

The sequence is in A.P.

Here,

$a=108$ and $d=117-108=9$ $l=549$

We know that,

$l=a+(n-1) d$

$\Rightarrow 549=108+(n-1) \times 9$

$\Rightarrow 549=108+9n-9$

$\Rightarrow 549-99=9 n$

$\Rightarrow n=\frac{450}{9}=50$

$\therefore n=50$

$\mathrm{S}_{n}=\frac{n}{2}[2 a+(n-1) d]$

$=\frac{50}{2}[2 \times 108+(50-1) \times 9]$

$=25[216+49 \times 9]$

$=25(216+441)$

$=25 \times 657$

$=16425$

Therefore,

Sum of all integers between 100 and 550, which are not divisible by 9 $=145925-16425$

$=129500$

The sum of all integers between 100 and 550 which are not divisible by 9 is $129500$.
